A famous large souvenir shop with variety of music boxes to choose from. Perfect shop to buy an ideal gifts for families & friends. Easily accessible from the main train station. Tip, if you want to visit this place, be here before the opening time to avoid large crowd.

The place is definitely worth a visit, they have an amazing collection of music boxes! We spent almost an hour and half here admiring the music boxes. But they don't come cheap, I got myself a flowery music box completely made of marble. Good place to get exquisite and pricey souvenirs :D and I regretted not buying a few more :(

It's nice to see and ideally learn a bit about the manufacturing of the music boxes, but essentially this is one big shopping hall full of music boxes for the masses littered with Chinese tour groups. Not really a museum, more like one huge gift shop.

Beautiful place, delicate designs of the music boxes. A bit pricey but the designs are really special and well made.

We were looking for music boxes as gift, and was recommended by hotel staff to look no further than here. We had to thank her. Not only we got what we were looking for, we had a great time wondering inside this amazing building. There are so many musical boxes, in difference designs, size and forms. Some can have your favour music chosen and boxed up to your liking. On the upper floor where the museum is, we were amazed by the different types of musical boxes collected and on exhibit, ranging from as small as match box to as big as piano. You can easily spend up to 2 hours or more here if you like these boxes, and try listening to their tune.

I visited this place with my family 4 years ago during a vacation trip to Hokkaido, and it sticks in my memory ever since. The place is official known as a "museum" of music boxes, while in fact it's more of a craft house and a shop showcasing over hundred various designs of music box. You can find almost every design on Earth mankind can imagine music boxes could be made, from classic "box" designs to conventional (some pleasantly creative, some weird in a cute way) ones. If you go to Otaru and are on a quest for some souvenirs, be them for yourself or others, this place could get some bucks out of your wallet (and, I would say, they're worth it!). If you enjoy taking photos, this place would surely satiate your enjoyment. It might not be the best place to represent Otaru or Hokkaido, but Otaru Orgel Museum is a place worth visiting should you have some time (and money) to spare, and I for one recommend you pay it a visit.

This place is HUGE! Don't get just stuck on the first floor, go explore level 2 and 3 too. I didn't buy any of the fancy looking musical boxes, but I did get a few without the outer decorative boxes- it's cheaper! You can ask the store people for a list of songs they have so you don't have to go wind up every single box to know what song it's playing. Even if you're not planning to buy anything I'd still recommend to hop in and take a look.

If u like cutesy music boxes, weird impractical picture frames, and generally impractical paperweights, THIS is the place to go.

And if you are a courting couple, or newly-wed, you HAVE to go buy some mementoes here.

It's a nice experience overall but prepare to jostle with pretty much every tourist on the island, all of whom congregate at this spot!

when you hear the soothing sound of sushi music boxes playing in the background, you know you are in the right place. If youre tired, just go to the giant music box on the second level, insert 100 yen and then leave the place all refreshed with the song of canon in d in your mind
