My husband lightly dragged me into this museum to see it, and I'm glad he did. It's really well done with lots and lots to see and it's well documented. I found it really interesting and it's worth visiting.

If you enjoy technology, or radio history, then this museum is for you! If not, you might not like everything, but everyone should love the show. Who could not enjoy all the fireworks of a really big van de Graff generator.

A neat museum with lots of reading and history. A few hands-on experiments for adult/kids to try out.

There is a lot to see and do here. A minute after we arrived we were given a demonstration of a number of static machines. I was greatly for this review, and it certainly enhanced the remainder of our visit.
