The museum is the brainchild of two former Technoclub promoters

This October will see the opening of a brand new Museum Of Modern Electronic Music (or MOMEM, for short) in Frankfurt, Germany.

A project that's been 10 years in the making, MOMEM is the brainchild of Alex Azary (the museum's director) and Andreas 'Talla' Tomalla, who ran Frankfurt's successful club night Technoclub from 1984 until 2000. They've overseen a music-themed redesign of the entire building, inspired by “round 12-inch records, square sleeves, and metal mesh based on soundsystems and acoustic panels”.

Once inside, the entire museum is an immersive, multimedia environment and we're promised “interactive experiences, musical instruments, decks, software, wearable gear, art and graphic installs, AI, VR and AR, light shows, and so much more that connects you to electronic music in new ways”.

For more information, see MOMEM's own website or find them on Facebook.
