The museum houses an amazing variety of self playing instruments and automata that might have been found in the home before regular broadcasting started in 1924, all in superb condition, and presented as a live entertainment by our friendly and knowledgeable guides. Many of the items are for sale, as this is a constantly changing collection. Open all the year round, seven days a week. See here for details and pictures.
