  • Excellent Museum and kind of an antique/history exhibit at the same time. Has something for everyone including radio, music, recording and history enthusiasts. Everyone likes easily charging their gadgets, one should know how the power they use came to be so easily accessible to us humans..... "Spark Museum" Explains It All! Be sure to watch the (optional) show it is fantastic worth every penny! Kid-friendly if they're old enough to understand and learn, there is some experiments for ages 5 and Up
  • Great place to visit if you have out of town guests! One of the top things to do in Bellingham. Lots of cool stuff to learn and they even have a huge play room upstairs for kids if your young ones need a small break from all the "look but don't touch"--although there are several interactive displays that invite touching too. It's pretty much a "self tour" situation, but sometimes they have friendly staff on hand to explain stuff too.
  • Something very different to experience with your whole family! Love the dancing musical electric! And don't forget to check out the theremin instrument!
  • There is a lot to explore in this museum. The big show with the Tesla Coils is worth the extra cost of a ticket.
  • This is an incredible museum, filled with all sorts of old (150 years old!) and newer electronic gadgets. I was very (pleasantly) surprised at the amount of things to do here! We thought an hour or so would do it, but we easily could of spent 3 hours! The MegaZapper show is a must see if you do go, because mainly it was both entertaining and informative, and because of the 10', 4.5 Million volt Tesla Coil. A must do in Bellingham and Washington!
