The Moogseum

The Convergence of Dr. Bob’s SoundSchool and Bob Moog Foundation Archives

Moogseum LogoThe Moogseum is the hallmark project of the Bob Moog Foundation, the culmination of years of hard work and the success of both of our main projects, Dr. Bob’s SoundSchool and the preservation of the Bob Moog Foundation Archives. The Moogseum opened in the spring of 2019 and is located at 56 Broadway Street in the heart of downtown Asheville, NC .

The Moogseum is the convergence of the Foundation’s goals of educating and inspiring people through electronic music, just as Bob did himself. It serves as a educational, historical, and cultural resource to Western North Carolina and the worldwide electronic music community through the following experiences:

A multi-media, interactive timeline of Bob’s life and work, including never before seen personal documents that lend great insight into his thinking. Over 700 archival items are accessible through the timeline’s touchscreen kiosks.
The all-important story of Leon Theremin and his seminal invention, the theremin, both inspirational forces in Bob’s life and work, which leads to a bay of interactive theremins and oscilloscopes providing easy instruction on how to play the theremin and understanding waveforms.
The “How Electricity Becomes Sound” immersive visualization dome invites guests to step inside a circuit board and trace electricity as it evolves into sound, delving into the very heart of Bob’s work in sound synthesis.
Re-creation of Bob’s workbench, and an exhibit on modular synthesis, featuring a legendary modular that includes prototype modules from the late ’60s.
The “History of Synthesis” interactive timeline honors 34 historical and contemporary developments in the field, bringing many fascinating but little-known instruments to life and giving a context to Bob’s work.
The Learning Synthesis exhibit provides a hands-on, immersive opportunity into the basics of sound synthesis for the novice and advanced learner.
Bob’s Connection to Asheville exhibit lends insight into Bob’s early connection to western North Carolina.
