How Do Our Online Visits Work?
We use Zoom as our online venue (NOTE: please let us know if you are unable to use Zoom so we can make alternative arrangements).
Option 1: One Virtual Venue for One Physical Location.
We invite you to a private and secure chatroom. You (and other members of your household, if you wish) visit from a single device.
Option 2: One Virtual Venue for Multiple Physical Locations.
We invite each of your group’s members to a private and secure chatroom. Each member of your group can be in a different physical location – so you can reunite with friends and family around the world while visiting our museum!
Don’t forget to wear headphones if you can, as the sounds will be much clearer if you do!

What To Expect Upon Your Arrival
You will be greeted by our Chief Curator, who conducts our Online Visits in the same room as our Museum Archives, our Physical Objects Collection Exhibition Cabinet, our #ObjectOfTheWeek vitrine, and a bookshelf containing highlights from our Research Library. Any or all of these materials may be referred to during your Online Visit.
Feel free to contact us!
PLEASE NOTE: The recording and redistribution of Museum of Portable Sound online visits is strictly prohibited.
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!
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.
