The Mechanical Music Museum

Today we went to a quaint town called Northleach, in Gloucestershire with our family friends to see an award-winning museum called The World of Mechanical Music which walked us dozens of self-playing musical instruments covering three centuries.

Demonstrations included restored barrel organs, barrel pianos, musical boxes, polyphons, automata, reproducing pianos, phonographs, and gramophones shown in a period setting and maintained in perfect condition.  It was fascinating!

Here's a picture taken in the street outside of the three people accompanying me.
