In the Spotlight

Learn about our four collections: the Permanent Collection of Sounds, the Physical Objects Collection, the Research Library, and the Video Gallery!


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!)
