Combine the docent-guided tour of their 44,000 sq. ft. residence which houses the world’s finest collection of automatic musical instruments with a tour of the Carousel Pavilion featuring the Eden Palais Carousel. Your group will also be treated to a mini-concert on the world’s largest theater pipe organ.
