Film about Morris Museum's automata collection

Here is a fantastic short film by the producer Ron Thomas as part of the series called The Midnight Archive. In this episode Jere Ryder, Conservator of the Guinness Collection of automata at the Morris Museum, talks about the history of automata and some of the details of the museum's astounding collection. The pieces featured in the film, fantastic as they are, represent only a fraction of this enormous and important collection.

You can learn more about the Murtogh D. Guinness Collection of Mechanical Musical Instruments and Automata at the Morris Museum Web site.
