Sound by Design

Sound by Design showcases some of the most important – and exciting – innovations in sound technology over the past 150 years: from early scientific instruments used to study sound, to iconic sound technologies that influenced how we listen to music, to electronic instruments that helped us create music in new ways. Visitors will get close to some of the most impressive artifacts in the museum's sound collection while exploring an immersive soundscape installation, playing DJ on an over-sized record, and experiencing the stillness of the Quiet Cube – a room specially designed to eliminate echoes.
