A unique museum dedicated to an amazing array of musical items from all over the world. Well worth a visit to understand how music has evolved in different sizes-huge room sized machines have transformed to our tiny machines of today,fascinating indeed.

A very charming exhibit with knowledgeable guide. It's really a kind of magical and enchanting experience that really takes you back in time. A tribute to man's ingenuity in the age before ipods. If you are in Rudesheim, you should visit here. Takes about an hour.

Unfortunately we didn't get to see inside this museum as they will only operate tours for 4 or more people. As there was only myself and my daughter, the guides continued to sit outside and chat.... Very disappointed

Simply beautiful and truly enhanced our visit to Rudesheim. The staff's passion for this museum and preserving the history is evident. You will be left speechless by the intricate and well-maintained instruments throughout Siegfried's. It is a must for your stop in Rudesheim.
