My husband lightly dragged me into this museum to see it, and I'm glad he did. It's really well done with lots and lots to see and it's well documented. I found it really interesting and it's worth visiting.

If you enjoy technology, or radio history, then this museum is for you! If not, you might not like everything, but everyone should love the show. Who could not enjoy all the fireworks of a really big van de Graff generator.

I don't really understand where Bellinjgham comes across this way cool Museum, very interesting collection. The highlight is definitely the Faraday Cage (lightning) show. It might scare small children it is loud. My girls thought it was pretyy cool at 7 and 10 yrs.

I haven't been in here for a good many years but they've expanded and changed the Tesla coil show so it was worth a revisit. I'll second the reviewer below: it's great that they have working examples of many musical devices from Edison cylinder on...More
