A new electronic music museum set to open in Frankfurt will be the first to celebrate the specific genre of music and the culture that comes with it. With a scheduled opening for 2017, the museum will document that rise of the genre, its ties to the German music scene at large and will seek to make sense of the cultural implications that are coupled with it.

Set to display artifacts and archives documenting electronic music's history, the first electronic museum will mainly aim to be a sensory-based experience that considers the visceral aspect of techno.

The museum is being championed by Andreas Tomalla, who is said to have invented the term "techno," and will feature an experience that serves to gently replicate the experience of techno in a club but repurposed for all patrons of all ages.
