Johnson Victrola Museum

Museum in Dover

Throw your doubts aside. This small niche museum is pretty darn cool. Delaware native Eldridge Reeve Johnson founded the Victor Talking Machine Company, and this collection spotlights his life's work. Knowledgeable docents will crank up a 1903 Victrola for you and spin an old tune on a 78-rpm recording. Dog lovers can learn the story of Nipper the Victrola dog.
