About museum

The museum is based on a private collection of sound reproducing equipment. Due to the rapid development of tourism in Kolomna, there was a desire to show the collection to the guests and residents of the city. This topic is also closely intertwined with the history of the city – in the 30s there was a gramophone factory in Kolomna – so the creators of the museum wanted to preserve this history.

The Museum’s collection contains more than 200 exhibits, including:

– Kolomna gramophones;

– music boxes on metal disks;

– Edison’s phonograph;

– the Pathe brothers’ gramophones;

– various models of both mechanical and electrical sound reproducing equipment.
