The MBSGB Archive


The Musical Box Society of Great Britain holds an archive of material relating to all aspects of mechanical music. A valuable research resource, it includes a comprehensive library of books, some now out of print, and an extensive collection of publications from other organisations. It also holds copies of press cuttings, tune lists, auction catalogues, catalogues and leaflets for museums and collections, documents and ephemera, and a selection of material on audio, visual and digital media. Enquiries should be addressed to the Society’s Archivist:

Material is not normally loaned out, but may be inspected by appointment.
