Overview

The Klipsch Museum of Audio History highlights the achievements of Paul W. Klipsch, a founding father of the audio industry. It is housed in an historic building that served as the first Klipsch factory in 1948, and was previously the telephone building during WWII for the Southwestern Proving Grounds. Most artifacts on display are the work of Mr. Klipsch, but there are many others too.

So glad I made the journey. Received a very personalized tour of the museum by a curator who knows the Paul Klipsch story! He answered every question and made one appreciate the achievements of Mr. Klipsch.

Thanks so much for the kind words! The Whitman's were a pleasure to meet. They basically drew out my "drink from a fire hydrant" spiel on Paul Klipsch and his diverse career. I look forward to another visit from them. Bring your friends!!!

Wonderful experience. So glad we took the time to visit and learn the history of Klipsch speakers. Never seen an Edison Phonograph in action before. One of the many surprises.
