After reading the reviews on TripAdvisor I just had to drive the three hours from home to see this Bryant's Stove and Music Museum for myself. I was not disappointed; it was all I expected and more! Many of the mechanical toys, calliopes, player pianos,...More

I had a wonderful visit with Joe & Bea Bryant last Saturday and enjoyed a personal tour. There are classic cars with working horns, operational calliopes, Hurdy Gurdy street pianos, the Doll Museum (search for videos) with one-of-a-kind machinery, mini-pneumatic machines and more than I...More

This place is hard to explain. There is a showroom of restored woodstoves, but then things get weirder. A table of old tools and cooking implements, then a Doll Circus room that should be avoided If you are susceptible to nightmares about clowns or Barbie...More

We heard about the Bryant's Stove Shop from a Wood Stove vendor at the Brimfield Antiques Show. We were looking for parts for a 1930's ish King Kineo Wood Cook Stove for our camp. The Bryants and their daughter and son-in law were super helpful...More

Some 30 years ago, Bryant's refurbished an ancient Belgian coal-burning stove my wife had acquired. While the stove was up at Bryant's, we stopped by and discovered this wonderful world of treasures from the past. Vintage cars, stoves from years ago, player pianos that work,...More

This was listed as rainy day activity by the owners of the airbnb we stayed at in Freedom, ME. My expectations were pretty low, but my daughters were super excited about a doll circus. It was incredible. I am pretty sad that the gentleman who...More

While visiting friends on a rainy and 63-degree day in August in Maine, they took us to this out-of-the-way museum. The collection of stuff and the genius mind that put it all together will blow your mind! The accumulation of obsolete piano rolls is nothing...More

I can't really describe this place, it's unique, interesting and bizarre all at the same time. But they have lots of cool antique cars, toys, and musical instruments. My kids are 10 and 7, and I wasn't sure what they would think of it. But...More

Discovered by accident when we needed a stove part re-chromed, the toy and mechanical music machine collection must be seen and experienced to be believed! It's a family-owned treasure trove of player pianos, hurry-gurdies, calliopes, stoves and mechanical toys. Trust me, it's an experience you'll...More
