We wouldn't have searched this out, but we were in Wiscasset for lobster rolls at Red's Eats and saw it was rated as a "gem" by AAA. We took the one hour tour (which actually lasted longer than that) and that was more than adequate....More

It took a little work to find this place but it was absolutely worth it. Some people have complained about the price of the tour at $20 per floor but one floor gets you three rooms jam packed with all kinds of wonderful, fascinating music...More

How do you rate the attraction and tour guide high, but the customer service low? Good points first. Our tour guide was informative and charming, and the boxes were amazing. The quality of sound that some of them produced was outstanding. My husband didn't really...More

We went to this museum back in 1995 and it is still the best museum we have ever experienced. At that time a retired London symphony conductor was the owner and he gave a concert in the museum in the evening (don't know if he...More

We knew this was going to be special just from the entrance...music boxes to play for a quarter. Then we took the extended tour which included both floors. Magical isn't the word for it. Our host-guide was fantastic, there are more beautiful music boxes/devices here...More
