Magical sounds: on the guided tour of our fascinating music automatons, you will see and hear how piano keys are pressed as if by magic, violins whirl in the wooden case, rollers play waltzes.

The Musical Instruments exhibition on level 2 presents music automatons, including various automatic pianos. Learn more about fascinating self-playing instruments on which play music as if by magic. Some instruments for which this is conservationally justifiable will be played and demonstrated during the guided tours. An event as part of What's on today: Discover Science LIVE!:
