Musical Museum

399 High Street

During your visit to the Musical museum you will experience the fascinating world of automatic musical instruments through a continuous demonstration in which the instruments are explained and played. Sounds from the past fill the air: the sweet toned musical box - the grandeur of the pipe organ - the subtle sounds of the concert pianist - the racy rhythms of ragtime. Whether the instruments were for the exclusive homes of the wealthy, or more humble dwellings, their background is explained and you will see and hear them play automatically.

You should allow 90 minutes or so for your visit. That way you can enjoy such marvels as Mills Violano-Virtuoso which plays a violin and a piano, the Steinway Duo-Art grand piano which reproduces exactly the performance of pianists such as Gershwin or Myra Hess, the "Clarabella" which contains all the instruments of a small band and the mighty Wurlitzer cinema organ which thrilled thousands in years gone by.
