Exterior view of the museum
The Museum of Music Automatons in Seewen, Solothurn, houses one of the largest and most famous collections of its kind, featuring Swiss music boxes, disc music boxes, clocks, watches and jewellery, as well as other music automatons.
This institution is a Swiss federal museum. It is one of the principal tourist attractions and cultural highlights of north-western Switzerland and the "Schwarzbubenland" region. The modern museum building is designed to fit in with the surrounding countryside, its colour and materials reflecting the rough yellow of the Jurassic limestone.
