His collection now occupies three historical buildings and features more than 1,000 bells and 10,000 records, none of which are hidden behind glass. Listen to the guides play popular tunes on the bells and unusual piano-organs. See how various gramophones and music boxes operate, while the clocks constantly chime.

  • The Museum contains a collection of musical instruments, clocks, bells and irons. Exhibits are in working order. All the exhibits collected by John Mostoslavskim. I admire this man. As you can gather as many exhibits different collections, to organize a Museum? It is worth considerable effort. After all, it is necessary to find the thing to buy, perhaps even restore. Several times, was at this museum. And after each times came in full of enthusiasm. I especially enjoyed the tour, conducted by John Mostoslavskij. Man charismatic and with humor. So, I highly recommend visiting this interesting place.

  • Very amusing Museum. Tour guides are professionals. If you want to plunge into the world of old, but interesting things, then you should definitely go to this Museum
