My husband and I both enjoyed the whimsical music boxes and instruments of all kinds in this museum. It would enchant all ages. We especially loved the little mechanical singing birds.

With all of the Americans in town and around this area, finding 4 people to do the English tour should not be a problem. Check with your tour advisers or if all else fails go and see if you can get on a list.
