There is a big emphasis on space based communications technology at this museum - with the show in the Radome being the centre piece. It is an excellent sound and light show utilising this enormous satilite receiving dish as a prop. The dish (enclosed is the 200m wide done) was used 1960s with the world's first telecommunications satilite Telstar.
The rest of the museum traces the history of telecommunications, from morse code to today. There is also a big space element with satilite and launch vehicle mock-ups. There is also a cool section on the international space station. Be aware the cafe is not open in the off season so bring a packed lunch as you will spend 4 hours here. However, the ticket allows you entry for the whole day - so there is no panic if you want to go off, eat, and come back.
