The Museum of Portable Sound is dedicated to the collection, preservation, and exhibition of acoustic objects: cultural artefacts related to the history and culture of sound. With a specific focus on portability, digital initiatives, and community engagement, we bring the culture of sound to the public, one listener at a time. By eschewing a typical architectural model and operating solely as a wandering, portable museum, our institution questions the traditional museum model by leveraging its own portability towards investigating what a museum can and should sound like in the 21st century. With collections spanning the natural sciences, music, art, culture, and portable recoding technologies, our visitors are able to experience the culture of sound in a personalised environment.
Free, Booking required.
