Description

In March, 1999, RHS President Ed Walker and the City of Bowie signed a long-term lease agreement for The Radio and Television Museum. This fully restored, turn-of-the century building is located on a lovely corner lot in the City of Bowie, conveniently located, just off of Route 50 and the Beltway, near Washington, DC.

Mission

The Radio & Television Museum, governed by the Radio History Society, seeks to educate the public about the history and impact of radio and television technology and broadcasting, through the Society’s efforts to collect, preserve, and interpret radio and television artifacts, programming, and publications, starting with the dawn of radio.

History

Artifacts Collections

The collections begin with 19th century communication devices and experiments with radio waves. The museum's radios begin with early crystal sets and go through the development of television.
