We visited this museum two years in a row while visiting Williamsburg. The various vintage music machines are delightful, entertaining us last week as much as they must have entertained Americans a century ago. Loved this collection!

My wife and I had a great time. I'm an organ lover, so really enjoyed the opportunity to see their reed and pipe organ up close. A number of beautiful music boxes and unique devices that you won't be able to see or hear anywhere...More
