Canada's only mechanical music museum. The collection illustrates and demonstrates the development of automatic music machines from 18th century barrel organs to 1950s juke boxes via musical boxes, street and barrel pianos, residence and dance hall organs, player pianos, phonographs, gramophones and vintage radios. The museum offers tours taking approximately 1 hour and demonstrations of the genuine antique instruments include about 20 examples.

With Great Sadness, as of May 19 2015 the Revelstoke Nickelodeon Museum has closed its doors. A great loss for the community ! Owners David and Leslie Evans have relocated to Vancouver Island to enjoy their retirement years.
