Musical MuseumExperience the fascinating world of automatic musical instruments at this unusual, melodious museum. The many instruments housed here were all designed to provide music at the flick of a switch or the turn of a handle in the days before electronics and microphones.

As you tour the museum, a backing track of sounds from the past fill the air. There's the sweet-toned musical box, the grandeur of the pipe organ, the subtle sounds of the concert pianist, and the racy rhythms of ragtime.

Whether the instruments graced the mansions of the wealthy, or were designed for more humble dwellings, their background is explained and you will see and hear them play automatically.
