From telegraph and radio to radar and satellites, the National Electronics Museum offers visitors access to the electronic marvels that have helped to shape our country and our world.
Located within minutes of Baltimore’s BWI-Thurgood Marshall Airport and the BWI Rail Station, the museum offers a wide variety of both static and interactive displays, as well as a research library that is open to the general public, with holdings that focus on all aspects of electronics history.
Besides our wide variety of displays, we also have a complete amateur radio station, K3NEM/W3GR, fully equipped with vintage and modern communications systems.
The National Electronics Museum has nine permanent exhibitions and one rotating temporary exhibit. The galleries display breakthroughs in electronic history in the areas of communications, radar, countermeasures, electro-optical, underwater and satellites.
