  • Superb Museum of mechanical music instruments. You will find instruments automata of the 18th century, machines placed in public places, all in music, of music, boxes of orchestrions and a movie theater with the first movies sound systems. Its founder, great Siegfried Wendel left us October 10, 2016, but his son and his team will amaze you with pleasure.

  • 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.
