Description The Museum collection traces the development of communication from the pre-electric era to the present day. We can only display a small fraction of it at any time. This virtual exhibition allows you to browse through some of our more interesting artefacts.

The collection includes
1. Telephone instruments and exchanges
2. All types of radio receiving and transmitting equipment
3. All types of audio equipment
4. Domestic television and video equipment
5. Professional television cameras (B&W and colour) and studio equipment
6. Early experimental radar
7. ICT equipment
8. Military communications equipment
9. An extensive technical library of scientific literature and related documentation

It represents what may prove to be the prehistory of the Age of Electronic Communication, into which our post-industrial society is being rapidly propelled.
