Staff's recommended collection

Automaton Ernest

Automaton Ernest

When I was a fan, I really wanted to see him and waited for 3 hours until the appearance time. When I became a staff member and was able to move him, I was deeply moved.

Ernest pushing staff
I'm a genuine fan I've been attending since I was 4 years old! I love the collection including automata! I have been attending as a customer for a longer time than as a staff member, so I am aiming for a concert that I find fun to attend. I want to enjoy both surprises and discoveries ♪
disk musical box polyphone 103 type

disk musical box polyphone 103 type

It is a disk musical box with "Drop a Penny in the slot" written on the side, which is thought to have been used in cafes and pubs in England. It makes me feel the everyday life of England at that time.

Polyphone 103 type pushing staff
He specializes in the history of Europe in the 19th and 20th centuries, when mechanical instruments were active, especially the history of entertainment in England. What was the state of people's lives at that time and what were the mechanical instruments that colored them? Introducing the history and culture surrounding the collection.
Phonograph Victorola Credenza

Phonograph Victorola Credenza

It is a model called "the highest peak of gramophone". The power of the sound produced without electrically amplifying the sound cannot be fully conveyed in the video. By all means, it is a gem that you want to hear the sound directly.

Credenzapushing staff
I have been involved in the collection for about 10 years. Every collection is unique and mood, and sometimes it stops playing or misses the sound. With the feeling of being the manager of such a difficult collection, we aim to create a concert that complements the protagonists.

The one-sided heather pattern (a complicated pattern that rarely appears unlike ordinary wood grain) and the Raden work in the center are wonderful and fascinating to see at any time. The cat legs that support the heavy musical box are also designed to have a luxurious feel.

Sublime Harmonie Guessing Staff
Various types of wood are used for beautifully aesthetically pleasing mechanical instruments. Taking advantage of my experience in woodworking, I will introduce the highlights of beautiful cases. If you would like to hear about a little maniac wood, please let us know!
disk musical box Polyphone 54 type "Mikado"

disk musical box Polyphone 54 type "Mikado"

When I first heard the tone of this musical box, I wondered if it would have such a rich tone. It is also recommended to listen while imagining how people over 100 years ago listened to this tone.

Polyphone 54 type "Mikado" pushing staff
All of our collections are fascinating and unique instruments. I am studying every day to listen to the timbre, look at the shape, and communicate with each instrument. Please enjoy the sounds of the instrument as if you were friends.
Ecrivain

Ecrivain

It is an automaton that shows a story that makes you stare at it and the beauty of detailed modeling in a short time. There are some interesting points about costumes and keys, so please have a look near them.

Ecrivain 's staff
I am interested in the history of clothing and the history of automata in the world. We hope that you will be immersed in the timbre of the historic musical instruments that have changed in this facility, which is surrounded by beautiful nature that never changes. We will happily show you the charm of mechanical instruments and automata.
