This museum is a hands-on place. It introduces the young generation to electronics by coupling historical facts with operational equipment such as the Morse Code where kids can tap in the code and order a pizza! It is a great place for grandparents to take grandkids down Memory Lane as most remember when the mircowave came and when we listened... More

Had a great time with the hands on exhibits. Vintage electronics explained in a simple cohesive manner that makes it interesting for geeks and non-geeks alike. Some devices were displayed that I had only seen in books. Well worth the visit.

Like the title says, if you are interested in electronics and the history of the subject, then this place should be on your list to visit. Not very exciting unless you have a desire to increase your knowledge on the subject

Finding the museum is a little difficult but it is located in a small building on a corner of nursery road closer to BWI. Parking is a small lot next to the building and enter at the red awning. There are a few very large scale exhibits outside so be sure to go all the way around the building. Admission... More

If I could have gone here I would have really liked it. My Dad was an electronics nut and I would have gone in his honor...

This was a real surprise! It covered the development of electronics from Edison & Tesla to advanced missile and aerospace technology and everything in between. Allow a couple of hours to view all the exhibits and displays. Well worth the visit!

If you have kids that you want to be influenced with the history of advanced technology, this is a great museum to have them visit. This is a museum specifically focused on electrical engineering, and the timelines of history of electronics progress. Exhibits on the fundamentals of electronics, the rapid advancement during WWII, The Cold War, Vietnam.

Nice lil' place if you are looking for an uncrowded museum. My faves are the old phonographs. Great to show the youngsters but the rest might be too technical for them to enjoy.
