Addresses of Museums in Germany
By Philippe Rouillé

In the last MMDigest, Philip Jamison asks about the addresses of two
German museums, one of which, actually is in my listing of 200 museums
in the web site Musica Mecanica (So, Philip, did you look real closely
at the www? :-), and the other one is not, which I am sorry for !

Philip Jamison writes:

Actually, unless I am mistaken, the Bruchsal Museum is a subsidiary
of the Badisches Landesmuseum Karlsruhe, and the mechanical music
instruments figured in the catalogue are in Bruchsal.  The address
of the Bruchsal Museum (listed in Musica Mecanica) is

  Badisches Landesmuseum, Museum mechanischer Musikinstrumente,
  Collection Jan Brauers, Schloss Bruchsal, 76646 Bruchsal. Germany
  Tel.: + 49 (0)7251/742661

As for Gera, it is a German city about 40 miles south of Leipzig,
with more than 120,000 inhabitants.  Sorry, I do not know more ...
and I would like to (because the barrel organ figured in the catalog
"Traurig-Schoen" is beautiful) !

Best regards,

Philippe Rouille  (Paris, France)
