  • What an awesome memory was created. We were looking for something to on Cape Cod and took a trip to Chatham and decided to check out the museum on a whim. Pulled up and they were closed. The brochure ...  more »

  • When we arrived at the small building, we expected to spend maybe half-an-hour looking around. Between the video presentations, the displays of historical information (including a restored Enigma machine), and the temporary exhibit of women military pilots of WWII, we spent a good two hours there. The staff were knowledgeable and helpful. We didn't have time to hit the Educational Building, but it has exhibits about more modern radio communication. A good, informative museum, especially for people interested in early wireless communication, Marconi, and WWI & WWII.
  • Very informative. Excellent hands on experience. Would recommend to all interested in the first wireless communications, the " WW II "enigma " device and telegrams. How our past shipping industry depended on these for our safety. Wonderful hidden gem. Current Air Forces WASP exhibition also interesting.
  • Excellent museum; well worth visiting. Especially for WWII buffs and persons interested in the history of radio communication
  • Great place to learn about Marconi, RCA, Maritime Radio and the history of wireless technology.
  • Fascinating history, presented well. For once, my wife was the one who didn't want to leave.
