Make a donation! The image is a parody version of the cover of the book The Giving Tree, with a cartoon version of our Chief Curator taking the place of the little boy, and the iPhone 4S we use to store our sounds falling from the tree branch instead of an apple.

We’re an independent museum in Portsmouth, UK
bringing the culture of sound to the world, one listener at a time.

We’re a real museum,
and we’re totally serious about it.

(But we do enjoy making people laugh while having meaningful conversations about [mostly non-musical] sounds in everyday life!)
