  • Definitely one of the coolest places to be, especially for the kids because they made their own radios, saw the history on radios and even got to see a Tesla coil in use. 
  • This is a marvelous museum of communications. Vintage radios, record players, records, televisions and more for the asking. 
  • Exit 37 leads down memory lane with a world of delightful memorabilia of communication history. Almost every would acclaim "wow! I remember that ! Good on a rainy day: call ahead 
  • 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.
  • They have a very nice collection of old radios and most of them (95%) is in working. Go see the place.
  • I went to the museum got a tour from Mark. He was very enthusiastic about the museum and the radios. He knew so much and everyone there is very helpful. Highly recommend!
  • 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.
  • Talking to the staff you can tell they truly care about what they put on display and take there time to learn everything there is.
