Amazing what a person with a special interest can accomplish. These mechanical musical machines were hand picked and gathered from all across Europe, and many of them were acquired for far less than they would now be worth. Room to room is full of unique...More

It's cool to see all these old mechanical music players that work. Some folks had way too much time on there hands years ago. Check it out if it's convenient but don't go out of your way.

This museum was included in our river cruise and it was great fun! Our tour included a guided visit in which the musical machines were demonstrated in each room. It was interesting and enjoyable. The collection is remarkable.

We have a lift,to get on the first floor. But it´s an old knights home. So we have some stairs from room to room. So with scooters it´s a little tricky.

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.
