Salvaging Sound Exhibit at the Detroit Historical Museum

The Salvaging Sound exhibit at the Detroit Historical Museum introduces kids to the Detroit Sound Conservancy and the city's music scene Feb. 8-April 7, 2019.

Detroit has some serious music history. From Motown to techno, our city has seen it all. But as time goes by, things start to fall to the wayside and pieces of our iconic music scene get lost in the shuffle. That’s where the Detroit Sound Conservancy steps in.

This nonprofit organization of teachers, librarians, journalists, historians, music fans and other professionals work to preserve the stories, artifacts and spaces that contributed to the music scene over the years.

And now, from Feb. 8 until April 7, 2019, you and your kids can see some of the work they’ve done and items they’ve saved during the Salvaging Sound exhibit at the Detroit Historical Museum.

At this temporary exhibit, families can view artifacts like a rare Wurlitzer jukebox, photos and posters from the former Graystone International Jazz Museum & Hall of Fame and many other items spared from demolition or damage.

Also, be sure to explore the pop-up Preservation Factory, which offers information on what the Detroit Sound Conservancy does and why its work is important.

The Salvaging Sound exhibit opens Feb. 8 at the Robert and Mary Ann Bury Community Center Gallery at the Detroit Historical Museum and runs through April 7, 2019.

Admission to the museum is free. Parking is available in the lot adjacent to the museum for $9. The museum is open 9:30 a.m.-4 p.m. Tuesday-Friday and 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday-Sunday.
