The Moogseum has been a vision for over ten years and held its soft-opening on May 23, 2019, with the grand opening on August 15, 2019. The Bob Moog Foundation and the Moogseum are completely separate entities from Moog Music Incorporated, the company that manufactures Moog synthesizers. Michelle Moog-Koussa, Bob’s third daughter, is the executive director of the Foundation.
The museum is full of historical, musical, and science-based interactive exhibits that bring Bob’s legacy alive to inspire expansive thinking. Through the space visitors are invited to play theremins and synthesizers, learn how electricity becomes sound, and delve into more than 1,000 pieces of archival material through custom-designed touchscreen kiosks. Hundreds of those items can only be found at the Moogseum, which is the only entity that has access to the Moog Family Archives.
Open daily, 11:00 am – 5:00 pm every day except for major holidays.
Admission is $8.50, free for children 7 years and under.
