Hours and Admission
Notice for Thursday September 19th & Friday September 20th: The museum is having repair work done to the sidewalk immediately in front of the museum’s main entrance doors. The museum will be open for normal operations throughout the work, however, the work will completely block the main entrance. We are setting up a Remote Lobby at the “side door”. This side door is at the corner of the museum parking lot and will be clearly marked. (Parking should be unaffected by the work. This work will not affect the museum’s Accessibility – although it will improve it once complete.)
The National Electronics Museum is open from 9 am to 4 pm Monday through Friday, and 10 am to 2 pm on Saturdays or by appointment.

The Death of Telstar: Bad Uses for Good Electronics
Special Guided Tour with NEM Director Mike Simons
The revolution in electronics is controlled by the human factor. A device may be the best at what it does, but that doesn’t ensure that people will put it to good use. Likewise, a device seemingly with no purpose can become the perfect application. Join NEM Director Mike Simons as he explains how radar didn’t save the fleet, how a cancelled and incomplete system helped destroy an entire army, and why the darling of the early space age was destroyed shortly after launch.
