Hi Sandy, Check out the listing of Player Piano Technicians at: 

and then contact any of the technicians in your area.  I'll bet that
one of them would be proud to have one of their units on display.  I'll

and persons interested in Mechanical Musical Instruments.  Perhaps one
of them would be interested in helping.
