A magnificent collection of orchestrions and related music makers.

From what I could see, it is true about the negatives - no visiting without at least 4 adults and an overbearing matriarch at the front door. Prepare to deal with these and it... read more

This is an old building in Rudesheim which is really the town's only tourist attraction. Shops nearby are strictly junky souvenir shops. The museum itself houses many music boxes inciluding some which fill the entire wall. Some are quite unique to look at. However, the tour takes you slowly through the building, listening to full musical pieces from many of... More

From what I could see, it is true about the negatives - no visiting without at least 4 adults and an overbearing matriarch at the front door. Prepare to deal with these and it will be well worth it. The collection inside is magnificent - about 350 machines of a huge range of different ways of making music. Only a... More

Our river cruise stopped in this little town on the Rhine river. We caught a small tourist train which took us to Siegfried's Musical Instrument Museum. The building old and well preserved. Not knowing what to expect so we were sceptical as this was an additional tour on our cruise. The knowledge of our guide and intriguing musical instruments were... More

This was another great spot for some tourist photos. We didn't go inside, but did take pictures on the grounds. The display outside looks interesting, but we decided to save the money for something else. I think elderly people would really enjoy this museum.

This place has an amazing collection of musical instruments and it is so exciting to see them all in working order. The musical experience is out of this world and a visit is really worth it.

This was an included option on our European River Cruise tour. It was interesting enough, but in hindsight I should have opted out and spent my time wandering around the cute town of Rudesheim instead. All of the other people in our group thoroughly enjoyed this experience, but most of them were an average of 20-30 years older than me.

We toured here through Avalon River Cruises and I have to admit, I was not sure how interested I would be. Boy was I wrong and happily surprised. The collection of amazing working musical instruments is astounding. Fun and interesting and for me it was interactive as I got to be an organ grinder! Well worth it!

Dozens of mechanical musical instruments from bygone years are on display and in working order giving a lovely musical experience. The tour guides are very knowledgable and enthusiastic about their subject. A cool building for a hot day is a plus.

We visited this museum during a stop off whilst on a Rhine cruise. It isn't far from the boat landings being about 30 yards further towards the edge of town than the chairlift station. It consists of mechanical music machines which will play various bits of music without human intervention. The exhibits are over 100 years old and are absolutely... More

We were attracted by the beautiful tower and were surprised by the museum. We were lucky to be the 4th and 5th visitors as there needs to be at least 4 people for a tour to take place. Astounding musical, mechanical creations and fascinating variety from huge room fillers to tiny palm sized birds, a lot of which were demonstrated... More
