Music Maker at Terra Technica + Tour By Karl Dawson
Whilst searching through the Internet recently i came across a photo of a very nice example of a MK2 Music maker that was on display at the Terra Technica Museum in the Excalibur City complex, in Chvalovice - Czech Republic. the Museum has one of the biggest Jukebox displays in the world ( if not the biggest ) instantly i decided i needed to visit this amazing place and booked a flight for February 2019 for a birthday treat for myself. I contacted Gábor Varga at Terra Technica and asked permission if i could use the photo of the MK2 on this website, well it was a wonderful surprise when they sent me a tour of the museum and also some detailed inside and out custom shots of the Ditchburn MK2 on display. We will start with the Mk2 Music Maker photos and then we will take the Museum tour along with some info about the place. Enjoy …… For more info please click on and visit www.terratechnica.info
