Museum Speelklok

Last sunday me and my daughter visited a beautiful museum in Utrecht, called Museum Speelklok.

Museum Speelklok collects, preserves and restores a large collection of self-playing mechanical instruments from all over the world. One of it's major roles lies in spreading it's knowledge of the collection to a wider audience.



The Museum is located in a former church, on the picture is the first floor.



Music box















This kind of organ you find in the streets of Amsterdam





 On the ground floor you find tombstones.

If you would like to know more about the museum, you can find more information here

  11. Holy smoke, that organ is a piece of art! I love museums...Canada doesn't have very old buildings (not compared to Europe), but still, the history is very interesting!
