We literally stumbled across this museum and took a chance that it might be worth a visit and it was! Housed in an odd multi-level building it sort of tells the story of the development of communication. I say 'sort of' as there is not a lot of narrative tying the various elements together (morse, telegraphy, recording equipment, telephony, radio,... More

Vintage tube radios rub shoulders with digital, state-of-the-art Nagra T digital reel-to-reel recorders in this Museum, set under the antique building hosting the municipality of Arezzo. Prof Faust Casi, the tireless creator and curator of this Museum, is always looking for more vintage or classic equipment to add to this already impressive collection. You will not find only audio equipment,... More

We have visited this little gem twice. And we will visit gain. There is so much history there, that is impossible to remember everything in one visit. There is history of the early radio, television, wireless communications, optics, movies, early computers... and so much more. The exhibits are of international nature (not just Italian) and you will have a chance... More

This is an excellent exhibition of early radios and Marconi's experiments before he continued his work in Ireland and England. It should be of interest to every engineer and radio amateur.

I found this 2 Euro gem To be well worth looking around in. Pictures are allowed, without flash. While the collection was a bit short of computer history, other areas were well covered and thoughtfully displayed. Movie making was particularly I testing, with items from the very first attempts to around the1950s. The rooms used for the collection wind around... More
