Only in Museum – #3

In the list of unusual museums, I should add one I found this year – a museum about obscure music generating machines! I will write about the trip soon on my other blog.

The museum is called Sigfried’s Mechanical Music Cabinet and is located in a small but charming town Ruedesheim, on the river Rhine, in Germany.

So here’s a mechanical fairground organ that used to play music in a merry go round in Budapest, sometime in 1908. It was made by the company “Gebrüder Bruder” from a town Waldkirch in Germany. The museum folks found it in a totally dismantled state in a barn and restored it. Now it works perfectly, although not in a fairground but in a museum. A very interesting thing to notice is the Oriental theme for the facade. Could it be because Hungary had an Ottoman history? Who knows..But I’m sure a lot of people enjoyed it in its glory days.

You can listen to the music here and make a trip down a century!

Would be great if you would join the series by posting something you found catching your eye in one of your visits to the museum. Then create a pingback to this post by including the link to my post in yours. You can also give the link to your post in the comments below. Also, tagging the post with “Only in Museum” and “OiM” would help all readers find these posts easily.

I’ve also included a “InLinkz party” link that’s running till the 27th of November 2022 for this post. It’s easy, you can just enter your URL there and it will show the thumbnail from the picture on your post. So we can see each other’s posts really as exhibits in a museum and of course, can navigate to the post from the image. When my next post in the “Only in Museum” series is live, then the party will move there.

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!
