Johnson Victrola Musuem

Johnson Victrola Musuem

In 1967, a memorial to E.R. Johnson was created by the inventor's family and the State of Delaware. Today, with the family's blessing, the museum has assembled an extensive holding including Johnson's personal collection and many subsequent additions. Exhibits include phonographs, recordings, memorabilia, trademarks, objects, and paintings that highlight Mr. Johnson's successful business enterprises and chronicle the development of the sound-recording industry.
