The Musical Museum

The wonderfully rare collection of self-playing instruments found at the Musical Museum takes people back in time to a period before microphones and electronics. It reveals not only how the music itself was captured, but how the instruments were powered, bringing the unique sounds of these instruments to life.

It was originally opened in 1963 by Frank Holland MBE and originally known as The British Piano Museum. Visitors can see the collection of player pianos, reed organs, orchestrions and violin players that make up the permanent display. Special events are put on for kids during the school holidays, including fun trails encouraging them to explore the building.
