Nice, small place. It has some very informative exhibits, and cool working ham station. When we visited, the volunteer was an amateur radio operator so we got to see him make a contact.

this was a great way to pass the time while in the area as well as teach me new things about the electronics industry! If you need to pass time in the area take a trip over to dive into the wonderful historically rich museum.

Great military history of electronics. Great way to kill time near airport. You can have an interesting visit in just an hour or spend lots of time reading lots of detail.

This is a great museum to visit. It shows our children a part of our everyday life, and most kids (now a-days) know about electronics. In fact, I see this museum as a way to open up the minds of our youth - perhaps they...More
