Our World - Charmsori Gramophone & Edison Science Museum

Desktop7
As the name suggests, this is a place dedicated entirely to gramophones and science. The museum comprising of two separate museums, Charmsori Gramophone Museum and Edison Science Museum, is the first and largest of its kind with a variety of valuable vintage and antique gramophones and Edison awesome inventions.

What I find truly fascinating is that most of these antiques are not just for decorations and antiques but are totally functional instruments capable of producing live music.

From another corner, I also came across these decorative light bulbs, one of Edison's greatest inventions. They are  completely operable and are bright as the day they were new.

Another not to be missed is the movie reels of the same era. Even after decades, I still find these magnificent pieces of early technology to be endlessly fascinating.

There are also various types of retro radios produced around the world from the 1920s to the 1980s.

Here are the many faces of the late Thomas Edison, his inventions and innovations, as well as historic artifacts from his life. He developed many devices that greatly influenced life around the world and I'm pleased that I had the opportunity to experience history and a chance to see inventions of a great inventor in this museum.

  14. Oh, I would love both of these museums! I went to a Sound & Vision expo in London recently and loved it. It was all about the history of first radio and then television broadcasting. And being a bit of a geek, I love science museums too.
