Visit Virtual Museum in Paris
By Philippe Rouillé

The world famous Musee des Arts et Metiers (alias Musee National des Techniques) is closed for renovation for several years, but it has a good server on Internet (mostly in French ; some summaries of the articles published in the museum Journal are in English). I advise you strongly to explore it on:

I precise that I am not a member of the staff, so my advice is independent from any pressure ! You will discover on this server several automatic musical instruments listed, amidst them is the famous "Joueuse de Tympanon", by Kintzing and Roentgen, bought by Marie-Antoinette, with a photograph of the android, and even a video you can import on your machine (6 Mo).
