Description

Art and technology take a waltz together in the Murtogh D. Guinness Collection of historic mechanical musical instruments and automata. While the smartphone in your pocket delivers music seamlessly and invisibly, the musical instruments in the Guinness Collection reveal their intricate moving gears, cylinders, and hammers in a delightful display of ingenuity. Learn about some of the earliest examples of “music on demand” that includes highlights from over 750 mechanical marvels in the collection that span 400 years.

Technological advancement quickly transformed many aspects of human life, including how we enjoy music and art. See and hear our collection of musical instruments—from a miniature music box that fits on an 18-karat gold ring to the enormous Poppers “Rex” Orchesterion, which plays a whole orchestra of instruments and is powered by compressed air.
