Created in 2012, the Museum was established to provide a permanent public non-profit museum that preserves the history of sound recording.
The Museum will include historical/educational displays that trace sound recording tech from the 1800's through acoustic, magnetic and modern digital recording technology. To provide perspective, there will be specific interactive displays to show how sound recording evolved and how it has impacted: broadcasting; education; film, games, music, science and video.
In addition to displaying and demonstrating recording devices from throughout the history of audio recording, MOMSR will profile significant inventors, manufacturers, engineers, producers and artists who created and benefitted from the technology.
This is especially important given Austin's being the "Live Music Capitol of the World." The Museum will have areas that can potentially celebrate the lives of iconic Austin & Texas folks including: Willie Nelson, Stevie Ray Vaughn, George Strait, Dan Rather, Cactus Pryor and others who folks recommend be included.
The Museum will be internationally inclusive with devices from around the world.
Our goal is to join with other Austin and Texas collections that will enhance the broad appeal of the Museum. We envision a world class museum that will become a major destination facility for Austin.
