  • The amount of electric and electronic devices throughout history is incredible. Of particular interest is a functioning theremin and the huge Tesla coil Zapper.  more »
  • Lots to see, many things seen authentic rather than reproductions. Exciting to see how far we've come in using and controlling electricity. A must see for anyone who likes history or enjoys antiques. ...  more »
  • This was interesting - more so for my husband as I'm not a museum person. It did have some hands on activities and laid out fairly well  more »

  • 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
  • Incredible museum, wonderful volunteers! The live show on weekends is very interesting, buy not a good idea if you have light or sound sensitivity. When they say its not good for children under 5, they mean it.
  • 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.
