Statement of Purpose:

Our mission statement is: "To show how communications technology has changed our lives."

 We are an educational resource for the community. We have the opportunity to excite young minds as to what can be achieved by applying mathematics and science to creating useful inventions for humankind.

In addition to displays, the museum also offer repair of tube-type radios, classes in building crystal sets for schools and scouts, classes in obtaining an amateur radio license, lectures and special off-site events.


Learn about the telegraph, telephone, mechanical sound recording, wireless telegraphy, radio and television, and the seeds of computers, satellite communications and the Internet. Tune stations on radios more than 80 years old; send a message in Morse code; crank a wind-up phonograph and listen to 100 year-old records; talk over candlestick telephones like the ones your grandparents used; see television when the only colors were black and white. Coming soon: research library with extensive service and repair information for radios going back to the 1920s; record library of vintage 78 rpm and early LP pressings; radio repair facility where tube-type radio equipment is repaired for patrons.

Major Collections:

Collections of vintage radios, wind-up phonographs, radio test equipment, vintage hi-fi, FM and stereo equipment, vintage recordings, vacuum tubes, amateur radio gear (Operating amateur radio station W1VCM).


2008 Calendar of Events: Being developed.
