The Museum of Portable Sound is dedicated to the collection, preservation, and exhibition of cultural artifacts related to the history of sound. With a specific focus on portability, digital initiatives, and community engagement, we bring the culture of sound to the public one listener at a time.
About the Museum
The Museum of Portable Sound is a portable museum dedicated to portable sound, currently based in London, UK. The Museum’s galleries exist as digital files located on the Museum Director’s mobile phone – due to copyright concerns, we are unable to distribute all of our objects online. Displays of our permanent collection are augmented with an ongoing series of rotating exhibits in our Exposition Space.
The Museum currently has one full-time staff member, our Director and Chief Curator, John Kannenberg. Contact John via email at john[at]museumofportablesound.com.
Our part-time Curatorial Assistant is Cristina Sousa Martinez. Contact Cristina via email at cristina[at]museumofportablesound.com.
