The entire area is majestic with its views and architecture. Most streets are only as wide as an Ox cart. So its nice to walk thru town. The displays are old traditional European musical instruments... just a neat spot, a lot to see take your time. each room has something worth seeing.

It is simply amazing what people invented over 250 years ago. The musical instruments that are on display are beyond belief. The mechanical violin player was something to see and try to comprehend.

Ruedesheim am Rhein wasn't on our original travel plan, but our hotel in Weisbaden suggested we might be interested. So we took a short train ride from Weisbaden with the intent of simply exploring the small town. The tourist bureau there had a brochure on "Siegfried's Mechanisches Musikkabinett" that caught our attention, so we went. The name alone was worth... More

Although I had been to Rudesheim on three previous occasions I had not been able to visit this museum. It was wonderful to hear so many of the instruments, realizing how much work has gone into their restoration. Visitors get a tour with a group and our young lady guide was excellent. The building with its turrets that houses the... More

I could have spent a lot more time in this museum of music boxes that have been collected for the last 45 years and dating back several hundred years. Listening to the boxes that they played for us was magnificent but not the small music box you would expect.

Player pianos, organs and other instruments, all in working condition. You can get up close to them. These were advanced technology a century ago. Much more entertaining than I had expected. Very glad we went.
