MARIETTA, Ohio – The Castle, 418 Fourth St., Marietta, will feature an exhibit of antique music boxes during July.

The exhibit includes music boxes of all sizes, small enough to be on display in a home.

The early music boxes had tiny flute pipes instead of teeth and gave an organlike sound. Later, the barrels could be replaced for a wider selection of music.

In 1885, metal discs were used instead of cylinders.

Some of each will be on display.

Hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays; 1-4 p.m., Saturday and Sunday.

Admission is $5 for adults; $2.50 for children ; and $4.50 for seniors.

For information call 740-373-4180 or visit www.mariettacastle.org.
