Today we are so bombarded with technology that we cannot think of how they could produce pieces like this museum without it. Well, they can and this place is well worth the visit and the lessons of what was produced. This was absolutely fascinating.

Exhibit of self-laying instruments. Especially amazing are the self-playing violins. Well-informed tour guides will take you through the museum and give demonstrations of the more interesting instruments.

This is a collection of musical instruments -some very large and some tiny. The guide played some of them. Some sounded quite sophisticated. The display included pianolas and instruments which combined a number of instruments playing together. Worth a visit.

We have a lift,to get on the first floor. But it´s an old knights home. So we have some stairs from room to room. So with scooters it´s a little tricky.

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.
