An amazing collection of mechanical musical boxes from various centuries and countries from large public performance ones to very small boxes. The guided tours are very good with good information and demonstrations. Some of them are quite loud so if this troubles you be prepared...More

This is a working collection of music machines. Our tour guide gave a 2 minute talk about a machine and would then turn it on. We listened to a handful of the hundreds of devices on display. The musical dolls was a little creepy.

I wasn’t that keen to visit, but I am glad I did. I’d see a musical museum in London and it consisted mainly of many musical instruments behind glass. This was completely different. The instruments were mechanised and the guide giving the tour would talk...More

We visited the museum with a group from our river cruise and had a very nice escorted tour. The collection of self-playing musical devices ranges from small music boxes to huge musical cabinets with a variety of instruments (one including violins). Our guide demonstrated several...More

Great museum of musical pieces. Absolutely worth the trip and guided tour. There are more than 300 pieces in this Museum, some of which are played to show you the mechanical workings and to hear the music that is generated. Well woth the visit.

An excellent place to visit and the guide played some of the instruments. The engineers back in the early 29th century were very clever!

We did this tour as part of our river cruise. I wasn’t overly keen initially but ended up really enjoying it. You won’t see anything quite like it anywhere else in the world. It was well organised and the tour guide did a wonderful job.

Ancient building. Even the floors are uneven. Don't think a scooter will work. Sorry

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.
