Phonograph Exhibits

Temporary & Non-Museum Exhibits, Collections, and Sightings


This gallery features three categories of phonographs on display not included in PhonoAvenue: 1) Temporary and non-museum exhibits related to the phonograph; 2) Collector's websites and 3) Phonograph Sightings documented within the context of a museum display where a phonograph is part of something else (e.g., in a 1950's period living room such or as part of an entertainment or technology exhibit). Phonograph Sightings, therefore, are probably the most random and serendipous in terms of what gets documented here.
