You must go. They open April 1st. 11AM-4PM. I live about 20mins away. It is great, the one the only Wurlitzer Caliola, Berry Wood A.O.W., and more. It is like a pigrimage for Mechanical Music lovers!!!

Kent,
When Jake and Liz DeBence had the original collection the the OLD Barn, I worked on some of the instruments and it is an amazing collection that Jake built up! I especially loved the old Berry Wood orchestrion! If any one loves automated instruments, a trip[ to Franklin is a must! I believe that this collection is that largest in the USA.!
