Musical boxes and organs

At the heart of the collection are the musical boxes built in Waldkirch. On the ground floor, they document the local history of the organ and musical instrument makers. The concert and annual market organs of the companies Bruder and Ruth & Sohn, in particular, with their charming Baroque sonority impress during tours and concerts with their differing range of sounds and the musical repertoire from the time of their creation. As far as possible, the large organs have coin slots so that visitors can also gain an impression of the musical possibilities of these instruments outside the tour times. In combination with the Museum Café, the coffee house atmosphere in the Webersaal is brought to life with the barrel orchestrion sounds of the 20th century, in particular.
