It is an amazing collection of mechanical instruments. Not only carillons or piano rolls but violins, organ, full bands. The guided tour is so informative even for the professional musicians. The museum owns some of the rolls recorded by Rachmaninov. Don't miss it

If you have any interest in music this is a place to go. All those self playing instruments look magical. Pick a time when they do demonstration.

The guided tour is brilliant - it includes demonstrations of many of the instruments. Check out the times on their website to make sure you are there at the right time to go on one.

This is a must see! I went with a school group having not known of the museum, what a wonderful surprise! Roy brought the history and craftsmanship to life. I'm sure the tea room would be a lovely place to sit on a sunny afternoon.
