Siegfried's Mechanisches Musikkabinett, 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.

  • Must see. Has some stunning exhibits ....can get full and entry can be impossible to get due to coach trips etc. However if you love this type of museum do what to can to get in as it is one of the best in Europe.
  • Super interesting museum. The presentation our guide provided was very informative.
  • Awesome experience! This is a must see for anybody visiting Rudesheim!
  • There are a lot of very interesting musical instruments to see, but the tour itself felt rushed and too structured. Tour guides were not overly friendly.
  • Really quirky - unexpectedly interesting. An hour well spent in a beautiful location.
