Our chapter encompasses the entire state of Texas and its neighboring states. . Our central hub is Dallas, but we have journeyed to Houston, Austin, and other cities throughout Texas. We try to meet at least four times a year at varied venues from individual home collections, both small and large, and to major collections and museums.


If you have a passion for automated musical instruments, whether you own any or not, and you are interested in joining our chapter, please consider attending our next meeting - check us out and meet other people who also have an interest and fascination with mechanical musical instruments!


If you decide to become a member of our chapter:

        You must first be a member of AMICA International - please visit their membership page for details.

        Dues to the local Texas Chapter are $10 per year per family. These fund help support our activities throughout the year. Please contact our treasurer by the email link at the top of this page if you are interested in joining the Texas Chapter.
