Reception area


The entrance to the museum shop as well as the restaurant is located above the reception area. The path through the reception area guides the visitor to the permanent and special exhibitions. The reception area includes two fair organs and, since the fall of 2008, a Mortier Dance Organ. All of these organs alternate every hour (start at 11.30 am). A number of museum events take place in the ambience of the reception area, which may also be rented for private events.

The Carl Frei organ is back in Seewen!

At the end of September, what used to be the world's largest travelling concert organ returned to its place at the Museum of Music Automatons.  
The organ travelled to Zaltbommel near Utrecht in early 2021 where it was professionally restored by the company Martin Conrads Draaiorganbouw.  
After 18 months in the Netherlands, the instrument is now freshly tuned and back in the museum's reception area, just waiting to play for visitors again.
