A world of mechanical music


IN THE HEART OF THE COTSWOLDS

A Destination for everyone

The Mechanical Music Museum is a living museum of the extraordinary variety of self-playing musical instruments and automata which were the pride and joy of our Great Grandparents.

All the instruments are maintained in the most perfect possible order in our world-famous workshops on the premises, and introduced and played by our well informed guides in the form of a live entertainment.

Here is also what has been described as “the best gift shop in the Cotswolds”, and the world famous restoration workshops, which serve discerning collectors from all over the world.

Musical Box Restoration

The unusually high quality of the work carried out here speaks for itself. Besides putting all the clocks and musical instruments on display into the most perfect possible condition and maintaining them, we are pleased to accept work from clients all over the world. You will not find a better service or higher standard of work anywhere.

SPECIALIST CRAFTSmEN

Just as the beautiful objects that we work with embodied many different skills in their manufacture, we employ a unique team of specialist craftsmen all working under our own rigorous quality control and direction to recreate those skills and to produce the best possible results.

pioneering DISCOVERIES

When the business started in London in 1961, we were somewhat surprised to find how little was known about self playing musical instruments, particularly musical boxes, and since then we have pioneered the new and difficult technology needed to put them back into perfect playing order.
