We have driven by the Chatham Marconi Maritime Center many times on our way to Chatham but had never stopped in. What a gem!
“In 1914, Guglielmo Marconi built a high powered wireless station in Massachusetts. The receivers were here in Chatham. Our museum tells the story of Marconi, whose company built the station, and how the station’s Morse code operators were able to communicate with ships across the world even a hundred years ago. And it tells the story of the secret role that the station played during WWII.”
There is so much to see and learn at the Marconi-RCA Wireless Museum. What a wonderful place for adults as well as children! You can self-guide yourself through the museum or listen to some of the well-informed guided talks by their dedicated volunteers.
We could have stayed for hours! It is so interesting and a definite to visit if you’re on Cape Cod!
