The Open-reel Tape Recorder Museum Foundation

The Museum's exhibit is the result of 20 years of collecting effort.  The idea to organize the collection into to an exhibit came from the owner's  wife's and  God bless her for that! After years of preparation, the Museum opened it's doors in May of 2002. Since then  many visitors enjoyed the unique  time travel back to the era of the open reel tape recorders with the corresponding musical experience. (The exhibited machines are all playing period music or sound samples). 

First Room

The Museum is located in one of the most beautiful village of the Nógrád county, called Terény, where other memorable sights are for the visitors' enjoyment (Albert Szentgyörgyi Memorial, etc.)
The largest giver is George Csoknyai from the USA, he has given almost 100 beautiful and special machines to the Museum. Therefore, the Founder received him to a joint owner.
The Museum was established from private sources.
