  • When I first arrived, I thought it would be a quick 10-minute visit. At first glance, it looked like a big antique store. But then I joined the tour!... Wow, did this guy know his stuff. It was much m...  more »
  • Located a bit off the beaten path, this museum is well worth visiting. It is run by volunteers and is cash only for admission. We tagged onto a tour led by a man who obviously was quite passionate abo...  more »

  • Nice collection of vintage radios, televisions, projectors, telephones. The staff are extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the artifacts in the museum. There is also a small gift shop.
  • Great attraction for history buffs, tech buffs, and history of tech buffs.
  • You get a good perspective of how communications has developed
  • This is a 6star museum for sure. It is an incredible collection of what some might call junk, that has been classified, loved, repaired and tended to create a historic timeline of electronics, communication, theatre, radio and more. The guided tour is the best, and the guide is so excited, it is almost too much information. These guys know their stuff and are so very excited to share all they have to offer. This place needs to be on the map for all museum goers and history buffs. there is so much that it boggles the mind to start to list things in the review. So I will list a few and there are so many more. Imagine getting to play music on an original Edison Phonograph. with wax recordings. Then step up to the second model Edison created in the thirties and listen to the improvement. Then step up the the next level with thick records and learn how they were created and listen again. If I only got that part of the tour I would have been ecstatic and happily overwhelmed. But the history and stories continued about theatre and projection. the first projectors and the meaning of lime light. How traveling movies were the rage in the twenties and what got peoples attention. and on and on and on Any way I describe it, this is a wow wow wow museum and I loved it.
