Hello,  I have recently been in Berlin and would like to suggest
seeing the small collection at the "Maerkisches Museum",
http://www.berlin.de/orte/museum/maerkisches-museum/index.en.php 

They have a demonstration on Sundays at 3 p.m. which is in German,
but so what, it is music we are interested in right?

Also recommended is the Berlin Musical Instrument Museum,
http://www.berlin.de/orte/museum/musikinstrumenten-museum/index.en.php 

It's not a mechanical music collection but is well worth the visit as
they have a very extensive collection with an audio guide.

On Saturdays the tour of the museum at 11 a.m. concludes with a concert
of the Mighty Wurlitzer.  The complete pipeworks and percussion can be
viewed through glassed rooms.  Recommended!

Enjoy!
Mark Yudell
