of Sound Discovery
of the Phonograph
"The Museum of Sound Discovery was
founded in 1994 following a donation by Mr. Armand Nogues, a
local industrialist and former mayor of the commune.
Located in an old Saint-Fargeau convent,
the museum is now considered one of the richest collections
of mechanical musical instruments, phonographs and radios
From the first sound recording experiments
at the end of the 19th century to the transistors of the 1960s,
this visit will take you through a thematic, chronological …
and unforgettably musical journey of discovery!"
