The Museum of Sound Discovery was founded in 1994 following a donation by Mr. Armand Nogues, a local industrialist and former mayor of the commune.
Located in an old Saint-Fargeau convent, the museum is now considered one of the richest collections of mechanical musical instruments, phonographs and radios in Europe.
From the first sound recording experiments at the end of the 19th century to the transistors of the 1960s, this visit will take you through a thematic, chronological … and unforgettably musical journey of discovery!
