When I was a brand new Airman in the USAF in 1988, I learned my trade on some of the equipment that is now in the museum!

Nice, small place. It has some very informative exhibits, and cool working ham station. When we visited, the volunteer was an amateur radio operator so we got to see him make a contact.

Based the name of the museum, a visitor would expect to see exhibits that cover many facets of electronics from throughout the USA.

this was a great way to pass the time while in the area as well as teach me new things about the electronics industry! If you need to pass time in the area take a trip over to dive into the wonderful historically rich museum.
