A first-of-its-kind museum dedicated to all things electronic music is opening in Frankfurt in 2022.
The Museum of Modern Electronic Music (MOMEM) is being touted as the first of its kind to explore the history of dance music. It will feature seven sections comprising performance areas and installations, each of which explore the impact of electronic music on art, fashion, and technology.

Plans for the museum were revealed back in 2015, when its proprietors announced "the first electronic music museum" before launching a pop-up trial run.
