  • Interesting museumfor somebody who is into electronics and the development of same. The museum is close by number of airport hotels and certainly worth a visit if you have few hours to spare. 
  • Nice, small place. It has some very informative exhibits, and cool working ham station. When we visited, the volunteer was an amateur radio operator so we got to see him make a contact. 
  • Great museum!! Very Educational, great place to do research too. Friendly staff, and very courteous.

  • This museum is such a hidden gem! We visited it after a birthday party at a local hotel surprisingly, the hotel staff did not know anything about it though it is in walking distance. There are hands-on science/electronics items that the kids can interact with and which provide an understanding of the history, progression, and application of 'knowledge' in electronics. My youngest gave it 'infinite thumbs up'!!
  • Fun museum with a lot of history. Friendly staff and a lot to see and do for a smaller museum. A must visit if you are in the area.
  • This place is brilliant! They have great events and programs. They go into great detail of explaining their exhibits, and have fun hands-on exhibits too! The staff and volunteers are friendly and helpful.
  • I flew into Baltimore and couldn't meet my cousin actually my niece until after she got off work. so I looked around and found the National electronics museum. I don't know what I expected, but I just have to investigate these small museums. now this one from the outside definitely has a military look with all the big radars and antenna out front. As it was created by people who were military contractors I expected maybe I'll find all the junk that is no longer top secret. Well it seems that people who retire in this industry have devoted a huge amount of time to saving the history that they created in the electronics industry and the military industrial complex. So different types of radars are listed, displayed, explained, and done so in a very understandable way. It is quite enlightening. then they talk about types of radios and how they were used to solve various puzzles to defend England, America, our troops, and other bits of history. To examine the satellites used for communications and their history was likewise eye opening in that all of the explainations in this museum are definitely from a different a point of view and one might read in a sanitized history book. For instance when the Germans were bombing London they were using various frequency bands that used together gave them targeting system that they could use day or night. One ingenious fellow took to the problem. He investigated in the frequency bands that were not being used by our systems and found their targeting frequencies. Then created jamming to bring another signals to confuse their system. Oh yes, now that I bring it up there were displays about jamming, counterintelligence, and more things that protected our troops and equipment. Fascinating! This is a wonderful museum to investigate if you have some time it's less than a couple miles from BWI and 5 bucks what a deal I enjoyed it a lot and will add it to my list of man you want to check this place out places
  • There are a number of interesting electronics on display, but if the lighting were brighter and less gloomy, it would be either a 4.5 or 5
