Music Makers Museum | Voices From the Past Inspiring the Future

About the Museum

Music Makers Museum explores the way America has recorded, listened and collected music. Our mission is to preserve and share voices and technologies from America’s musical past. These technologies range from Thomas Edison's phonograph to the modern iPod. Special programming is geared toward inspiration, education and entertainment for audiences of all ages.


Come visit the museum! The Grand Opening will be in April 2018 in celebration of Thomas Edison receiving the phonograph patent.
