"Showcasing Sparks of Genius in Communications Technology"
Put away the cell phones and iPads and tune into cutting edge times of yore when famous inventors such as Guglielmo Marconi, Samuel Morse, Edwin Armstrong and other communication pioneers were at their peak. Experience 200 years of communication technologies. See a wide range of history such as the first transistor radio, the first cell phone, hear a thundering 1000 watt spark transmitter, wonder at the Voice of America station from Delano, California, see the Titanic Wireless Room, see and listen to a working Western Union office, walk into a 1925 Radio Store, see shelf after shelf of radios and televisions, and much, much more!
