Mr Monkey at the Musical Museum, 2nd November

"These used to be in an old church, you know"

Mr Monkey outside the Musical Museum Mr Monkey in the main gallery of the Musical Museum

Mr Monkey scampered into the new home of one of the largest collections of automatic instruments in the world. Mr Monkey was shown into the first gallery, where he waited for a volunteer to demonstrate some of the musical instruments. He examined the Mills Novelty Violano-Virtuoso, a 1905 design which played a real violin. Unusually for an automatic instrument the Violana-Virtuoso worked with electric motors and electromagnets rather than pneumatic power.
