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.

The MRT is a genuine treasure. One of those out of the way places where a visit surprises and delights. THIS is why you get off the interstate. They have EVERYTHING. And the staff consists of retired engineers, hams and enthusiasts who actually KNOW the collection and what it means. And the staff will DEMONSTRATE the equipment too. Want to... More

This museum was created as an act of love by individuals who spent their life with radios/TVs and many from the industries and there are so many designs on display that it is almost overwhelming. Drive a must. 10 minutes from downtown.

We visited this museum on our way to Myrtle Beach. We ended up spending about 2 hours looking at all the wonderful old radios and televisions on display. The volunteers at this museum have done an excellent job of converting and old school into a museum of antique electronic technology. They have on display everything on display from the 20... More

This is a very special museum, run by a bunch of friendly volunteers who like electronics...especially radios. There is equipment going back to the early 20th century all the way up to the 70's. Although the hi-fi and TV rooms are modest in their content, the consumer, ham, and shortwave radio rooms are amazing and chock full of equipment from... More
