Musikautomatenmuseum

Musical instruments that play themselves? Yes, they do exist! In the sound-filled Museum of Music Automatons in Seewen, in the canton of Solothurn, you can see for yourself.   

Music automatons are a treat for the ears and eyes: they can blare loudly, fiddle softly, make piano keys look like they’re being played by a ghost and make little figures dance. The world-famous Seewen collection, which has been amassed over three centuries, comprises high-precision Swiss-made music boxes, orchestrions and dance hall organs, to whose music our grandparents and great-grandparents once danced; barrel and funfair organs; and the impressive organ from the Britannic, sister ship to the Titanic. By taking the hour-long guided tour around the themed rooms of the Museum of Music Automatons – included in the entry price – you can discover the fascinating world of mechanical musical instruments, which encompasses both wonderfully nostalgic melodies and Swiss precision mechanics.
