Paul Milhous

Paul Milhous' House

Paul Milhous and his brother Robert are the pair behind the Milhouse Collection in Boca Raton, FL. One can find specialty automobiles, mechanical musical instruments, and a wide variety of unique Americana. Much effort has been made to professionally restore ALL of the collection items to a level of extreme excellence!

Automotive treasures are displayed in settings related to the period of time when they were “new cars”. Galleries include the fabulous fifties “walk thru time”, a complete 1920’s filling station, the villager square, and a 1935 era automotive salon (patterned after the famous Auburn-Cord-Duesenberg showroom located in Auburn, Indiana).


Featured as a part of the extensive mechanical music collections are two large Wurlitzer theatre organs, one with original pipe-work and one completely digital (manufactured by Walker Technical Co.). There are numerous examples of rare and seldom seen music machines of bygone times. Among the largest music collections in the world, the Milhous instruments amaze and amuse visitors with their spectacular musical performances, beautifully restored mechanical workings, and elegant facades.


In February 2012, the Milhous Brothers sold their entire collection at auction for a total of $38.8M.
