Description Since 1991, our museum has been dedicated to educating the public about the history of electronic comunications, with a particular focus on Connecticut's contributions to that evolution.

Thousands of hours have been put in by our dedicated volunteers and if you'd have asked us when we started if the museum would have grown into what it is today, we never would have imagined.

Museum displays cover the periods from the mid 1850s up until the dawn of the computer age in the 1970s. Items on display include:

Telegraph Radios -Crystal, battery, AC, transistor
Telephone Televisions
Typewriters Industrial Equipment
Movie Equipment Telephone Central Office Equipment
Television Studio Equipment Microphones
Recording Studio Equipment Vacuum Tubes
Equipment Repair
The museum also houses an extensive research library with factory manuals, schematics, QST magazines and other historical data. Additionally we have vacuum tubes for sale.

Radiomuseum.org presents here one of the many museum pages. We try to bring data for your direct information about all that is relevant.
