The Seewen Museum of Music Automatons houses one of the world's largest and best-known collections of Swiss cylinder and disc music boxes, clocks and jewellery containing musical mechanisms and other mechanical music automatons from the past two centuries.

A guided one-hour tour will introduce you to a multitude of fascinating music automatons, which combine precision mechanics with melodies from yesteryear. They all play live for their audience. Families and schools can combine this tour with the popular interactive "Zauberklang" (magical sound) tour.

Come face-to-face with the mighty Britannic organ from the sister ship of the RMS Titanic and discover the story behind it on a twenty-minute guided tour.

Round off your visit to the melodic museum by paying a visit to the museum shop and restaurant.
