Klipsch Museum of Audio History

Audiophiles (loudspeaker geeks) will love this: a museum dedicated to one of the industry's most iconic and outspoken founders, Paul W. Klipsch. Guided tours take about an hour, and cover the man's four previous technical careers, including ballistics work at the Southwest Proving Ground during World War II. Both buildings housing the museum are former Proving Ground facilities. Folks interested in the history of loudspeakers and music in general will also enjoy it.
