A generation who grew up with LP’s, 45 rpm and 33 rpm music or remember the passing of 78’s will find the museum fascinating. Not the miniaturized form of today’s tiny MP3’s, but large instruments of music with character, substance, and old time flair. Located...More

Loved this unique museum which I just happened to find walking past one day. On a Sunday a guide demonstrates all the different old phonograms and it makes a very interesting and informative morning. You can also pick an LP of your choice and listen...More

I enjoyed this more than I expected to -- it is obviously the work of a loving collector - you can see the progress from Edison's first recording device to the modern turntable. In addition, you'll see an impressive collection of recordings from cylinders to...More
