In the last MMD digest (971227), Ken Vinen mentions the Wonderful
mechanical music Collection in Limoges, France, and writes :

It is of course already done for many months, dear Ken ! On my web
pages Musica Mecanica (thanks to the Musee des Arts et Metiers in
Paris), this museum is duly listed in the listing of museums, and the
listing of interesting links. You may even have a look at the short
web page of this museum (with 3 images) at
with links to other similar museums (and to Musica Mecanica).
It is probable that the 1999 General Annual Meeting of the French
Association of collectors (AAIMM) will take place in this Museum in
Limoges on March 8-9, 1999.
I have not yet visited the museum myself, but friends who did say that
it is a really interesting museum.
Best regards and best season greetings,
Philippe Rouille (Paris, France)
