this post is dedicated to one of my favourite museums

I’ve always been fascinated, held captivated by self-playing instruments. Musical boxes playing their tune gently in the quiet air – i’ve always loved watching them and their twinkling chime.

Museum Speelklok, with its large collection of automatically playing musical instruments, pretty much kept me in awe throughout its exhibitions. I really loved it, watching their mechanisms and listening to the tunes and just being fascinated by how such lovely music is produced by a machine, by itself
– after which, the invention of the grammaphone replaced these self-playing instruments. Such a pity, I would love to have one of these at home.
