Attraction details
Owner description: Visit Connecticut's newest cultural attraction and learn how communications technology has changed our lives. It's fun, educational and entertaining! Tune radios over 80 years old... talk over candlestick telephones like your grandparents used... send a message in Morse Code... crank a phonograph and listen to 100-year-old records... see what television was like when the only color choices were black and white. Learn about the telegraph, telephone, mechanical sound recording, wireless telegraphy, radio and television, and the seeds of computers, satellite communications and the Internet.

“A treasure in Windsor!”
Reviewed June 19, 2008

The museum is a treasure-trove of communications historical elements from early telegraph and telephone devices through vintage audio and video recording equipment. They even have an operational ham radio studio and reel-to-reel recording studio! A must for kids and hours of fun and an educational experience for all! Highly recommended!
