Johnson Victrola Museum

Johnson Victrola Museum

The museum highlights the life and achievements of Delaware's native son, Eldridge Reeves Johnson, founder of the Victor Talking Machine Company and a pioneer in the development of the sound-recording industry.


Due to road construction, the Johnson Victrola Museum parking lot will be closed beginning Dec, 13, 2016. Visitors should park on Bank Lane (the street immediately adjacent to the museum’s rear entrance). Visitors will be able to enter the building from that side. The parking lot is expected to remain closed until at least January 2017.

Museum hours of operation will remain the same during construction. In addition, the museum will be open from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Dec. 26, 2016 and Jan. 2, 2017.
