Hornblasters Announces Florida's First Horn Museum With Horn From Original 'Top Gun' Movie

For over 20 years, HornBlasters has been selling horns to drivers, who install huge train horns on their cars and trucks. Now they are creating a museum of horn history, a perfect tourist destination for kids addicted to toys, car enthusiasts or drivers who rely on Hornblasters for the loudest horn in the country.

Director Matt Heller is one of these drivers himself. A Florida Born, he hated fighting bad drivers on his commute, so he started designing train horns for cars. He could shoot bad drivers off the road – and he’s since shot HornBlasters into a famous American brand.

Heller, however, loved horns all his life. Train horns and whistles fascinated him as a child, and he devoured the history of horns as he experimented with new horns to add to Americans’ favorite cars. Over the years, he has acquired horns from all over the world, including: the Leslie Tyfon 425-DVE horn of the USS Ranger Aircraft Carrier from Top GunHeller’s creation of the Museum of Horns to display his collection and honor America’s storied horn history, including the Top Gun Horn.

“We have unique, historic horns from all modes of transport that will be on display,” Heller said in a statement. “We have a strong desire to build a destination worth showing off these historic and unique horns and whistles – a place where people can get in touch with the history of horns and some of these pieces up close can view.”

The Hoornmuseum will be the newest exciting tourist attraction in Central Florida† HornBlasters plans to open the museum in 2025. It opens in the Tampa Bay area, close to Busch Gardens, Walt Disney Worldthe West Florida beaches and other tourist attractions. Florida is the loudest state in the United Statesand Heller will make the Museum of Horns a must-see in the Sunshine State.


HornBlasters is a market leader in car train horn applications. Founded in 2002, it has created a niche automotive product segment of train horns for cars, trucks, rails and boats. Since then, the company has expanded its market exponentially, expanding to include air suspension, load support and electric air horns.
