I worked the museum's Christmas party and enjoyed my first experience at the museum! I learned some new and interesting things and got to see a lot of really neat pieces! This was exceptionally interesting to me because of my past in broadcasting and my general interest in the development of technology, especially in my area!

In addition to being a museum of radios and antique electronics this is the local meeting place for the local HAM radio club. I took my test there and I was hoping to meet some local HAMs to tutor me "in the ways of the HAM" but I could not get the attention of any of the several gentlemen who... More

This place had just about everything for the radio enthusiast. I found it very interesting. They had all kinds of communication gear and things to do with early TV. Well worth the visit

Museum open only on weekends, plan accordingly. Donations are accepted, no admission charged. Volunteers are a wealth of information. Lots of historical items to see. Located a bit off the beaten path in an old school.

The man who was our tour guide was as sweet as ever and absolutely loved what he did and you could tell. I love history and what better than for young... More

We had an awesome time at this museum today. Sure we were the only one there, so the personal tour was wonderful. It is full of different electronics from all over world. The tour took about hour and half. Please don't pass up this museum. The museum stays open on donations and grants so please help them. So make sure... More

This is a treasure everyone should check out at least once! We were greeted at the entrance by a couple of wonderful gentlemen and that was just the beginning of probably the best couple hours of information and entertainment we had the pleasure of partaking in for a while. The museum is open Friday, Saturday and Sunday, be sure to... More

I will say upfront that I am a little biased, as my grandfather is a volunteer and helps run the museum. But having that inside information allows me to tell you honestly that the organizers behind the museum put their hearts and soul into it. All of the volunteers that keep the museum up give it constant attention, and genuinely... More

This was a small place but it was crammed full of all kinds of electronics. Some of the stuff was very old but still worked. The man who showed us around was very nice and gave us lots of information.

Our group of five were given a tour of this museum. The displays of radios, televisions, telegraphs, and an impressive collection of other gadgets. One can tell that this museum was created and is kept in operation by dedicated people who know the collection and what it means to have such a collection.
