Baltimore museum for science & electronics
Jan 26, 2015 by: NeilMavis from Tulsa, Oklahoma
If you have kids that you want to be influenced with the history of advanced technology, this is a great museum to have them visit. This is a museum specifically focused on electrical engineering, and the timelines of history of electronics progress. Exhibits on the fundamentals of electronics, the rapid advancement during WWII, The Cold War, Vietnam.

Nice lil' place if you are looking for an uncrowded museum. My faves are the old phonographs. Great to show the youngsters but the rest might be too technical for them to enjoy.

I've known about this place for a while, but never found the time to visit until recently. They were hosting a robotics event, and I was impressed by the displays and how it was set up to appeal to a wide variety of ages. While at the event, I finally got to look at the exhibits and was surprised how large and well managed everything was. Since it was started by company employees, the exhibits focus mainly on military applications that deal with Westinghouse projects. The museum is active throughout the year, hosting special events, regular IEEE meetings, and a working amateur radio station. They also offer ham operator classes to the public. The museum may not be for everyone, but it is certainly very interesting and a good deal for the price of admission, which at this time is five dollars. They also have a pretty good web site.
A wonderful hidden Gem

This place is a wonderful, inexpensive place to visit for anyone. I guess it is more geared towards former Westinghouse employees or geeks that enjoy old radars, comm gear and cold war electronics, but it's is enjoyable for most age groups. There are some interactive toys and exhibits that would appeal to kids as well as adults, and lots of wonderful old electronics for the old ET's and electronics workers from all ages. This museum is a little difficult to find unless you're looking for it, its right on the corner of West Nursery Rd and near the Hilton. Very inexpensive, and a nice little gem.
