American Museum of Radio and Electricity

Bellingham is home to the American Museum of Electricity and Radio with collections spanning from the dawn of the electric age in the 1600's to the golden age of radio in the 1950's. Many of the displays are rare or one of a kind apparatus and texts collected by founders Jonathan Winter and John Jenkins. This display is a replica of the Marconi Wireless Room on board the Titanic. The equipment is from a sister ship of the Titanic and is still functional.


  1. Pretty interesting, Eli. Does Bellingham have any historic connection to the development of electricity and radio, or is the museum just the result of some local collectors who overran the space in their homes?

  2. Wow! And look how far we've come since with electronics.
