This museum covers the history of recorded sound but is also studying and experimenting with sound. Get the (wonderfully informed and helpful) staff to show you the sound-benches and the sound-room. This is worth a visit if you are near Parma.

Interesting exhibition, with old equipment used for recording and broadcasting of sounds. They have a special room where you can literally feel the sound around your body. The staff is very friendly. Free entry.

A small museum dedicated to the history and development of sound technology, I'm really glad I visited this place. It makes you think about things you ordinarily don't spend much time on. Everything was in Italian, but the reception can provide you with a translation...More

This is museum devoted to history of sound and its recording and sharing. Entrance is cheap (1€ for student). Tour is not guided so you have to read informational panels only. Collection of exponates is interesting, but it might have been more rich in my...More
