Our Director & Chief Curator is available for you!

Our online visitors will experience the same level of access to our staff for the duration of their visit: every single online visitor gets to have an exclusive, private meeting with our Director and Chief Curator!

New: Admission

For more than four years, our Director and Chief Curator has met face to face with each of our visitors, free of charge. That model is no longer sustainable, particularly in the days of Coronavirus. Previous to the outbreak, the only funding the Museum of Portable Sound received came from our Director’s teaching and public speaking engagements – all of which have been cancelled for the foreseeable future (our Gift Shop is also a small source of occasional funding).

Our online visits will therefore cost £10 for a one hour visit, £5 for students. This is not a decision we have taken lightly – if there were any way to fulfil our mission while continuing the Museum of Portable Sound’s long tradition of free admission, we would.

Thank you for your continued support during these troubling times. We look forward to hosting you in an online visit soon – and we hope to be able to see you in person again soon.

While you’re here…

…we need your help. For four years, we have managed to keep admission to the Museum of Portable Sound free for all. But this model hasn’t proven to be sustainable. If you value what we do, and would like to help us continue to fulfil our mission of bringing the culture of sound to the world one visitor at a time, please consider making a donation or supporting us long-term on Patreon.
