How did people produce music mechanically at home or in dance halls before the phonograph, radio or CD-player? The Kijk en Luistermuseum (‘Look and Listen Museum’) answers this question and many more! Look and listen!

The museum exhibits a collection of mechanical musical automata dating from the 19th century. The unique collection of spring-operated and hand-cranked automata, which includes singing birds, player pianos, barrel organs and music-playing figurines such as the magician and the banjo player. During the tour, your guide will demonstrate a number of the instruments.


Among the music boxes, the unique Harmonium Amabile is one of three such instruments in the world still functioning.
