An old church turned to a museum of the sound. You will find here old radios, old gramophones and the most modern ones too.

I was charmed by my visit to this small museum, in what used to be a church, in Parma. It was fun to look at all of the old record players, etc that make up it's collection.

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.
