Hear Ye! Hear Ye!

Join the History of Hearing Museum to go back in time! See the time of the ear trumpet and ear horn to today's remarkable technology. You may marvel at the crudity of the earlier hearing aids, but for their time they were no more grotesque than some medical treatments for deafness.


Marvel at the hearing assistance devices from yesteryear.

As technology advanced the first "transistor hearing aids" appeared late in 1953, then smaller and smaller hearing aids were possible.

As you venture through the museum, you will discover how the evolution of hearing devices have impacted so many lives. It's amazing to see how far technology has come, from cupping your hand around your ear to the tiny in-ther-ear hearing devices.


Enjoy full displays with an expert curator on staff fo an informative experience.

Admission is free, but monetary donations and any items related to the cause of hearing is very much appreciated. We look forward to seeing, and hearing you stop by!
