The York Museum of Automata

A wonderful collection of Automata!

This video is shows some of the fantastic examples of complex clockwork mechanisms, toys, jewel boxes and other exotic automata in the Museum of Automata in York England.

The museum closed in 1996 and its collection now resides in Japan, but this promotional video captures the magic and wonder of the collection very well.

Enjoy!

Keep your sightglass full, your firebox trimmed and your water iced.
