“Amazing - visit while you still can!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012 via mobile

The player pianos and Wurlitzer organ are of course wonderful in their own right, but what really makes the experience is Paul's enthusiasm and expertise - he clearly loves what he does. Not only does he own a fabulous collection, but he also repairs and refurbishes such instruments around the country.

Such a shame it will be closing soon! There are many tourist attractions throughout Cornwall, but a lot of them are difficult to get to by public transport. The Magnificent Music Machines are located a stone's throw from St Keyne Wishing Well Halt, making it ideal for those of us who don't drive.

“Don't miss this opportunity!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

We had the most excellent time at Paul Corin's museum. I was shocked to hear that he will be closing for good at the end of October this year. I urge you to visit before he closes as it is a real gem. Paul is so enthusiastic, not to say knoweldgable. To hear a Wurlitzer up close is an amazing experience, with the huge pipes thundering away. It is a treat not to be missed. gramaphones and of course the magnificent Wurlitzer. Forget Eden and Heligan - THIS is the best place to visit in Cornwall.

“A magnificent musical delight. Brightened a gloomy day.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

I had a wonderful trip to Paul Corins magnificent music machines. Paul himself was very knowledgable, fascinating and infectious in sharing his love for his music machines. I would highly recommend this tourist attraction as one of Cornwall's hidden gems.

“Magnificent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

Whether mechanically minded, musically inclined or just generally interested in history and innovation, a visit to Paul Corin's Magnificent Music Machines will prove well worthwhile. I found Paul himself to hold, an honest love of his subject, an in-depth knowledge, as well as an endearingly eccentric nature. Magnificent!

“bonkers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2012

The owner (Paul Corrin?)is bonkers. Factor in a few wurlitzers and fairground organs and it's completely brilliant.
