Discs & Machines - Sunny's Gramophone Museum, Kottayam

4.7
#6 of 30 in Things to do in Kottayam
Gramophones, records, Vintage cars, old bullet type sewing machines and many antique objects were collected as a hobby in the past 3 decades. Since this collection has many very rare gramophone records of the 1900 to 1940 period and a good collection of gramophones unseen by the present generation, it was thought to be appropriate to preserve them and make provision for future generations to see and study. New building was constructed using own funds and Museum was opened on 25th January 2015 in a public meeting attended by many dignitaries of the State. Feel free to visit the Museum. Serious enthusiasts can utilize the Homestay facility available here.

    Kudos to Sunny. We were amazed by his knowledge and passion and what a dream he has created. A must see for anybody who loves music and history. The collections of Gramophones and discs are just unbelievable. Would suggest folks who want to visit to fix up a time with Sunny before reaching the place as what is put for display is his personal collection with care and not a commercial venture. A big thanks to sunny for accommodating us at the last minute.

    A museum of gramophones. A treat to lovers of music, history & arts. Being a no-profit private museum, need to contact owners and fix visit.
