Mekaanisen Musiikin Museo

Museum in The Finnish Lakeland

This extraordinary collection of mechanical musical instruments ranges from a ghostly keyboard-tinkling Steinway to a robotic violinist to a full-scale orchestra emanating from a large cabinet. Entry is by multi-language guided tour that lasts around 75 minutes. The museum is in the timber-pulp town of Varkaus, well signposted 1km off the main north–south highway.
