Museum & Tours

Our collection of working instruments, displays and interactive exhibits tell the story of how music has been recorded and reproduced, from mechanical inventions to the present day.

Arranged over three unique galleries plus a concert hall, shop and café, our dedicated volunteers offer guided tours that combine practical demonstrations with an entertaining and informative narrative, answering any questions you may have along the way. 

You will find out how music was captured, how it was powered, and experience the sounds and actions of self-playing instruments. You will be amused and amazed, educated and fascinated. Kids' detective trails are available for younger visitors, and specially tailored children's tours and activities are run during school holidays (please call to check availability).

Group Visits (minimum 15 people) may be booked for any day of the week by prior arrangement.

The Museum's concert hall is available for Private Hire.
