Museum of Radio & Technology
One of the largest radio museums in the US, with 10,000 square feet of displays that tell the story of entertainment technology from the 1920s to the present. Learn the history of radio: what it is, how it began, how it grew to include television and computers and military operations, and a world-spanning hobby. You’ll see a ‘50s era radio and TV showroom; a pre-WWII radio shop, broadcasting studios, a “ham” radio station, vintage radio sets of all types and a comprehensive technical library that is open to the public. Knowledgeable tour guides, mostly veterans of broadcasting, will take the time to explain and demonstrate. There’s also a unique gift shop, and West Virginia’s Broadcasting Hall of Fame. Admission is free; donations are gratefully accepted. Operating hours are limited. Call ahead for days and times.
