Musical Instrument Collector Legend – CAARI 2022 Program Highlights


Join us this coming Winter!

CAARI takes you to the MUST SEE sites and those behind the scenes.  This one is a true treasure!  

The CAARI program (The Canadian & American Active Retirees in Israel) will visit the Nisco Museum in Ein Hod.  

This Museum, named for its founder, in the 1970’s. Nisan Cohen, originally from NY, brought his collection of mechanical music boxes and vintage mechanical recording devices from previous centuries. 

Nisan himself is quite musical. He served in the US Air Force in WWII and has directed several films. The museum was severely damaged by the fire in the Mt. Carmel Forest in December 2010 and reopened the next year.
