The Moogseum in downtown Asheville explores the legacy of legendary musical innovator Bob Moog, inventor of the Moog Synthesizer and other sonic achievements.
Chances are, one of your favorite tracks features a Moog synthesizer. In fact, if you’ve watched the hit Netflix series Stranger Things, you heard Moog synthesizers all over the soundtrack.
