From telegraph and radio to radar and satellites, the HEM offers visitors free access to the electronic marvels that have helped to shape our country and our world. Located within minutes of Baltimore Washington International (BWI) Airport and the BWI Rail Station, the museum offers a wide variety of both static and interactive displays, as well as a research and lending library that is open to the general public, with holdings that focus on all aspects of electronics history. Media format includes videotapes, manuals, books and journals. We also have an archive of historical photographs and documents that are available for legitimate research projects.
