Showing how communications has changed our lives

 Take a trip back in time and technology with a visit to the Vintage radio and Communications Museum of Connecticut. Learn how communications technology has changed our lives.

Hands-on fun for the entire family!

Browse our displays by yourself or take a tour with a knowledgeable tour guide. Many of our displays are “hands on” -- tap out your name in Morse Code; tune a 1925 radio; crank a wind-up phonograph; listen to a home-made crystal set; pick a song from a working juke box.

3/19/17 -Thank you for the tour of the museum! I really appreciate your time to let me touch everything. and share such incredible information and stories with me. I hadn’t even planned on going but noticed it on the way up to the N.E. Air Museum.Thank you, John.

Everyone there was so friendly and incredibly passionate about the items in the museum. You get to interact with the communication devices and learn how they work. I just so happened to be there on one of the volunteers' birthdays, and they invited me to stay and eat with them! Very interesting and definitely worth your time! I don't normally write reviews, but I had such a good time I had to share. e-mail -June 15 at 9:39 PM
