Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I had great fun in the museum. The tourguides were entertaining (really!!). The museum is packed with actually working mechanical music instruments from many eras. I can recommend this to any music lover :) The tour takes an hour and you can join at any time (no waiting)
The only downside is, there is no café.

I didn't have high expectations when gpinh to visit the "museum" but it turned out to be a very interesting and entertaining visit. There were three different guides during our tour and they all did a stellar job. One of them was likely the owner and he spiced up the tour with quite a lot of showmanship. The actual instruments are the likes you won't be seeing in many places and the favt they actually work still today is great. Give this place a visit if you are near Varkaus.

The guided tour took about an hour. The three guides presented different areas of the museum spoke in Finnish and English. We found the 2 younger guides to be the most entertaining.
An amazing collection in a grand old building (under partial renovation) which shows off the exhibits well.

I was stunned by the experience of getting to listen several mechanical instruments. I thought that visiting a museum might be dull, but this museum was totally something else! I have never been in a museum that provides so many experiences in a short period. All the three guides were excellent and the atmosphere of the building was unique.

You wouldn't expect a museum be this funny. See and listen to weird old mechanical instruments and very funny stories guides tell you. The tour takes about an hour.

Peculiar and funny instruments presented by great guides. Though you might have seen something similar elsewhere this shall not be missed. And as a bonus there are some funny interpretation of well-known paintings.
