#2 of 23 in Things to do in Ruedesheim am Rhein
Watch more than 350 mechanical musical instruments function like a computer at Siegfried´s Mechanisches Musikkabinett. Instruments from music boxes to large player pianos are displayed in a 15th-century knight's house tucked into an alleyway. The museum takes its name from its founder Siegfried Wendel, who was a master craftsman of these instruments. A workshop attached to the museum is still in operation, but you need to call ahead for an appointment to gain access to the workspace.

  • Housed in an old mansion/house is a huge collection of mechanical instruments varying in size and age. We were really impressed that some of them are in good working order, and got to see and hear them during the tour.
  • 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..
  • Enchantingly beautiful!
  • Interesting things inside.
