  • Step back in time and learn about the early days of Trans-Atlantic communication, on this fascinating museum and tour. Features original equipment from the stations founding in the late 1800's, through it's closing in the 1950s. Pairs nicely with a follow-on tour of the Marconi Wireless Station.
  • Interesting, run on a shoestring by commited and knowledgeable staff. Some nice exhibits
