Mechanical music instruments
Automatic musical instruments represent an interesting part of technological history. In the Technik Museum Sinsheim a large collection of these masterpieces of engineering can be admired. Besides some smaller instruments the museum halls house numerous important self-playing large organs like the biggest dance organ in the world built by the Belgian manufacturer Mortier and an Aeolian Grand concert organ with several thousand pipes.
Most of the instruments are in full working condition and can either be activated by the visitors or experienced in action during a guided tour.
