Video tour through the museum Collection Gallery of barrel organs

Dear friends, on these gloomy and rainy days, we invite you to join short video walk through the museum Gallery of barrel organs. We will find out how barrel organs – the instruments that allowed music literally march out to the streets and squares, were created. We will look inside a wooden case, and reveal the secret why a barrel organ is often called “sharmanka” in Russia. Photos and detailed descriptions of these items are in the section "Barrel organs". Audio recordings of these exhibits are collected in our Musical Library in the section “Barrel Organs”.
