Haifa and the Northern Coast Sights

Nisco Museum of Mechanical Music

Fodor's Review

When was the last time you saw a hurdy-gurdy? Nisan Cohen, a colorful and charming character who knows everything there is to know about old mechanical musical instruments, has amassed 150 music boxes, hand-operated automatic pianos, manivelles, antique gramophones on which to play his collection of old Yiddish records, and more antique musical marvels. Cohen, who renovated the museum after it was damaged in the 2010 Carmel Forest fire, will be pleased to give you a guided
