The museum has actually changed its name to Spark Museum of Electrical Invention but it is still downtown Bellingham taking up most of a city block. When I arrived in Bellingham 17 years ago, the museum was a little hole in the wall. With grant funding and healthy community membership support, it has expanded greatly.
Everything from old phonographs, radios, electrical devices of all sorts line the walkways through this place. They even have a member supported radio station that plays almost nothing but music from the golden era of radio. It can only be received in town, but it is a lot of fun.
Memberships are available as well as hands on educational classes for kids of all ages. It is part of a downtown core of attractions all very near one another including our independent movie theater, the Pickford, a hands on science museum right around the corner, a scale model railroad museum as well as plenty of art galleries, restaurants and clubs offering live music.
