  • Fascinating place! Some wonderful mechanical musical instruments here being restored and preserved, on view to the public with a very interesting guided tour. We missed the Wurlitzer so we will have to make a return visit.
  • We found this museum in a travel book for kids. Since it was a rainy day and is not very far from us we thought let's check it out. We expected a fairly small museum and were not exactly sure what it would be like. But then we were very positive surprised. Everyone was super friendly. We saw and heard the Wurlitzer first which was very impressive. Then we went on a guided tour and it was very nice. Our tour guide was Roy and he was such a warm hearted, lovely person who made the tour interesting and fun. He told lovely stories, was wonderful with the kids and showed and played lots of instruments. He opened the instruments up so we could see the mechanics and how it all works. The museum has a nice variety of instruments so it does not get boring. We all learn a lot and had a great time. We will definitely recommend this museum to friends and family and are keen to come back for one of the event evenings.
  • Brilliant place to visit for all age groups. Allow plenty of time for the tours as they offer a real wealth of information about all historic aspects of mechanical music. Evening shows and performances by professional organists on the in-house theatre Wurlitzer are regularly available.
  • We went expecting to view the instruments through glass casings and nothing more. Instead we were treated to a well informed, interactive adventure, with a guide who not only knew the history and mechanics of the instruments but was very entertaining. The range of instruments and their sounds was fascinating and it was all topped off with a talk and performance of the Wurlitzer organ. All in all a very rewarding experience. Thank you!!!
  • It would be pointless to visit here and see the exhibits without hearing this most amazing correction of mechanical music making machines. Fortunately there are guided tours during which a number of the machines are demonstrated. Make sure you join a tour. There is a small cafe on the top floor alongside a surprisingly large concert hall.
