Interesting history and some hand's on experience if you are familiar with Moog synthesizers. And you will be surprised at how little the factory is. Great little coffee shop a few steps away.

The Moog factory offers free tours twice a day. Learn the story behind these synthesizers and watch them being made by hand. Try them all in the showroom before or after your tour. Friendly staff.
