“Cute little museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

If you like pipe organs from the very old to the obscure. Mantle clocks to church organs to dance hall. Very interesting.

“Quaint, beautiful museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

This is a small, beautiful museum of music boxes and clocks. We took a guided tour that lasted an hour (with both English and Dutch), with a young guide who obviously knew his stuff and also seemed to love his work and the museum. We were given lots of demonstrations, heard lovely stories, and the whole museum is a lot of fun for both adults and children. Highly recommended. It also has a nice cafeteria.

“LOUD!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

This museum of mechanical music is pretty boring if you only walk around. Make sure you do a tour with a guide (included in the ticketprice) and get to hear al the musicboxes.

“A Must See in Utrecht”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

This was quite a delightful museum experience. The ground floor has an amazing assortment of music making machines but the street organ and dance hall organ section is quite spectacular. The guide plays plays about 6 of these unusual machines and the they just make you smile. This would be great for all ages. For those who love quick museum trips, the downstairs guided tour is about 45 minutes and starts on the hour, but you can join the tour at any point and remain for the beginning of the next tour.
