MOMSR - documenting reel to reel tape recorder history since 1998


We offer a seven hour video set about our collection and the history of magnetic recording available at this link. You can purchase the seven hours files via download.

Financial donations will go to the Museum’s General Fund to help MOMSR save and restore historical recording devices. Financial donations will also enable MOMSR to provide education about sound recording devices.

At this time, MOMSR does not have the ability to separate financial donations into specific categories.

Non-profit entity dissolved: In December 2017, after five years of working to create a permanent public non-profit museum, the Board decided we'd had given it our best effort and the non-profit was dissolved. Some of the significantly valuable vintage devices that had been donated to the Museum were purchased by the Theophilus permanent collection owners. Other donated items were sold to interested parties and the remaining funds donated to the non-profit "Swan Songs." The non-profit museum ceased to exist on December 31, 2017.

Please contact us for more details.

Thank you!
