In the first room, you'll find music boxes, automata, clocks, singing birds, animated pictures and gramophones as well as other accessories, tools and souvenirs of the time period.

In our second room, one can admire the grandeur of larger pieces while listening to these unique, priceless, mechanical musical instruments. Among the highlights there is the famous "Maesto", an orchestra from 1900 comprising 10 different instruments. Also in this room is the splendid "Phonoliszt Violina" playing solo violin. Many additional discoveries can be found as well, each one more fascinating than the one before.
