Here's a fun family activity!  The museum offers group classes in building a classic crystal set reminiscent of the earliest days of radio. It's a fun activity that teaches how radio works while kids and parents work together to construct a working radio that's theirs to keep. Scouts can earn a merit badge for taking part. For details, please contact John Ellsworth at (860) 673 - 0518 or email him at  Or complete the form below
