  • We were part of a tour of this museum and found it quite interesting. The cleverness of the inventors of these machines is quite extraordinary. We were fascinated by the one from Chicago...nice to see...  more »

  • Great tour. Kooky guide. Very much enjoyed the visit.
  • Very disappointing experience at Siegfried's museum. I had been very careful in making sure the museum would be open. What I did not know was that the tours would occur only if there were 4 people. Add to that two rather "scattered" tour guides who seemed genuinely perplexed that someone had even showed up for a tour. A "local" person was there as well and she tried to explain the situation to the guides but she got exasperated with the women and left. Then another guide showed up and showed us a few items but that was it. It saddened me that the membership for MBSI dwindles and experiences like this do little to encourage people get into the hobby..
  • Interesting things inside.
  • This is the perfect place for all music lovers.
  • Fantastiskt collection of working self-playing instrument! Wellpapp worth a visit.
