The Musical Museum



The Musical Museum

Museum of automated music players, many remarkable instruments.

Location: 399 High Street, Brentford , TW8 0DU

Description: The Musical Museum contains one of the world's foremost collections of automatic instruments.

The Museum was founded in 1963 by the late Frank Holland MBE who was passionate that self-playing musical instruments should be preserved and not destroyed and lost to future generations.

From the tiny clockwork Musical Box to the self-playing Mighty Wurlitzer. The collection spread across 4 floors embraces an impressive and comprehensive array of sophisticated reproducing pianos, orchestrions, orchestrelles, residence organs and remarkable violin players.

Upstairs there's a concert hall seating 230 complete with stage and orchestra pit from which the Wurlitzer console will rise to entertain you, just like it would have in the 1930s.

The Museum re-opened in late 2007 and is open to the public from Tuesday to Sunday inclusive.
