I was amazed with the collection of gramophones in this museum. There are various designs from the different makers. In addition to the gramophones, there were other lights devices from the Edison era. I take my hat off to the owner of this place for his collections. Very educational for all ages.

The slight apprehension at the admission cost of 12000 Korean won each, for what we thought would be a quick hour look around was soon gone. Three hours later we were so glad we went. The collection, the condition of the exhibits, the presentation, the premises and the staff is all first rate. Highly recommended.

At first i was thinking this was a let- down as I was led in to hear a short presentation featuring different sound systems - but once i got to wandering the museums i could not believe the collection of items. I was wandering and messaging a friend in North America in the film industry at the same time sending... More

This museum was the highlight of our trip. We went back a second day because we started too late on the first day and only got through the gramophone section. Much to our delight and surprise, we ran into the owner, Mr Song, who had spent 55 years collecting all these artifacts from a staggering number of countries across the... More

I enjoyed this museum immensely. And to think that it is in South Korea. It had so many inventions that I remember my grandparents and parents having in their homes as I was growing up. Edison was truly a genius. When you see all of his inventions in one place it is overwhelming. This is worth your time.
