Are you enthusiastic about communications history? Excited by the constant evolution of technology? Why not share those feelings with others by joining our museum as a docent?

If you enjoy meeting new people, telling stories about historic inventions and educating the public on how technology has changed our lives, consider becoming a docent.

As a docent, you'll take museum visitors on a tour through our display timeline, explaining who developed the technology and how it changed the way we live. You need not be an expert on the subject: we'll give you the training you need to deliver a meaningful, entertaining and informative tour.

For information about our docent training program, please contact:  John Ellsworth ( or Bernie Michaels (bmawrite@gmail,com).

Volunteer ! 

Looking for a place where your volunteer efforts will be appreciated and you see an immediate impact from your work? Consider volunteering at the Vintage Radio and Communications Museum of Connecticut.

It's not just fixing old radios! We need people who are interested in serving as tour guides. who have expertise in financial matters and accounting, marketing, carpentry, or are just willing to lend a hand sorting books and records or are willing to help with fundraising - from special events to using EBay.
