Radio and Television MuseumAbout
Located in a 1906 storekeeper’s house, the National Capital Radio and Television Museum explores broadcast history from the earliest days of wireless telegraph to the development of television.

A fascinating collection of broadcast memorabilia includes Depression-era cathedral radios, early televisions, “French Fry” transistors, crystal sets…and even the sound effects equipment from Washington’s legendary Walker and Scott radio program.
