Siegfried's Mechanisches Musikkabinett, Ruedesheim am Rhein

Watch more than 350 mechanical musical instruments function like a computer at Siegfried's Mechanisches Musikkabinett. Instruments from music boxes to large player pianos are displayed in a 15th-century knight's house tucked into an alleyway. The museum takes its name from its founder Siegfried Wendel, who was a master craftsman of these instruments. A workshop attached to the museum is still in operation, but you need to call ahead for an appointment to gain access to the workspace.

  • First German Museum of Mechanical Musical Instruments. Discover and enjoy: About 350 mechanical music instruments out of 3 centuries. Experience an eventful 45-minute tour with music. Very interesting for music lovers may not be the highlight otherwise.
  • Really had an extensive collection of working automated musical machines. Multiple violins, band organs, player pianos, Nickelodeons, very old photographs, and more. The guides were very informative and helpful. The gift shop offered interesting items and books describing many of the old machines.
