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.

We went as a group and I enjoyed it , but my husband wasn't that impressed . It was amazing to see how all the music started and I thought the young girl who did the tour was good . It is fantastic that people have the enthusiasm to restore these pieces and the skills . It was worth the... More

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.

The staff in this museum provide an excellent explanation of the many instruments on show. The type of instrument varied and they included -- sixteen instruments in one machine, six violins in another and a piano and drums in a third display. The final instrument was very small but capped off a great tour. I will not spoil it for... More

Long before we had musical synthesisers and electronic sounds you could still listen to a full orchestra without a musician in sight. It is amazing what mechanics would do with springs and pulleys and bits of string – and the sounds came from real instruments not recordings in these 18th and 19th century marvels. If you want to see rooms... More

Excellent place to visit, building filled with music machines which have been collected and restored over the years.The guide was very informative and played many of the machines for us, machines that we will probably never ever have the opportunity to see or hear again. Well worth ther visit and a must see attraction.
