The Art of Making Music

The Musical Museum at Kew Bridge contains one of the world’s foremost collections of self-playing musical instruments. In addition to the tiniest of clockwork music boxes and the Mighty Wurlitzer, the collection includes an array of sophisticated reproducing pianos, orchestrions, orchestrelles, residence organs and violin players, along with 30,000 historic musical rolls. Tours with live demonstrations of self-playing instruments and the Mighty Wurlitzer take place on open days throughout the day. The facility is located in Brentford, London Borough of Hounslow, a few minutes’ walk from Kew Bridge railway station.
