  • A gem of a museum whenever in the Dover, Delaware, area. There is an amazing collection of gramophone record players going back to the beginning of its invention. There are also numerous items related to Nipper the dog, which was made famous by HMV (His Masters Voice). A must see for anyone who grew up in the age of record players.
  • A wonderful collection of machines and Nipperabilia. Something for everyone to see, hear, and touch regarding one of the pioneers of the recorded sound industry.
  • If you like recorded music, sound equipment and technology in this museum you can see, hear and learn how it all started. Get the tour!
  • Unique and interesting museum dedicated to the victrola. RCA Victor's founder was born in Dover, hence the connection. History buffs and music lovers will find this a worthwhile visit. Also, fans of Nipper the dog will love the collection on the second floor. Best of all, it's free on the first Saturday of every month, although a donation is always nice.
  • This is a great place to visit. Gavin gave us a great tour and played records on the Victrolas. The museum has 2 floors with a great selection. The origins of the Walkman, iPod, tape recorder and jukebox can be traced back to many items in this museum.
