Description Taken from the MUSICAL MUSEUM's Homepage
The Musical Museum contains one of the world’s foremost collections of automatic musical instruments. From the tiny clockwork Musical Box, to the self-playing ‘Mighty Wurlitzer’, the collection embraces a comprehensive array of sophisticated reproducing pianos.

Museum & Tours

The fascinating range of self-playing instruments and music rolls tells the story of how people listened to music before the days of microphones and electronics. From the tiniest of clockwork musical boxes to the ‘Mighty Wurlitzer’ the collection embraces an array of sophisticated reproducing pianos, orchestrions, orchestrelles, residence organs and self-playing violins.

Tour guide and live musical demonstrations each day at 11.30, 13.30 and 15.30

You will find out how music was captured, instruments powered and experience the sounds and actions of self-playing instruments. Tours for group visits may be booked for all opening days by prior arrangement.

Audio guides to the collection are available in English, French, German and Polish at all times and are included in the admission fee.
