Nashville Musicians Hall of Fame Museum

Memories of the Phonograph


Doug Boilesen 2023

The Nashville Musicians Hall of Fame Museum in Nashville, Tennessee promotes itself as "the one and only museum in the world that honors the talented musicians who actually played on the greatest recordings of all time."

Recording artists are its focus with each exhibit telling "the story of a musician that you may have heard but may have never seen."

The museum's "timeline starts with the beginning of recorded music. The following gallery "Edison to iPod - The Evolution of Recorded Sound" has a selection of machines through the decades that have played back recorded music.











Special thanks to Friend of the Phonograph Chaige Baker for his visit to this museum.
