Overview
More
The museums area of more than 900 m² is filled with various types of radio equipment. The exhibition covers over the whole range of equipment from crystal receivers to luxurious stereo cabinets, televisions, and of course portable car radio equipment. The TV section has 'do-it-yourself' kits from ELFA, from the time when it was cheaper to build your own TV than to buy it. It also includes the famous nylon stocking, which was rumored to convert a black and white TV into a color TV! AGA's classic and elegant corner TV in hardwood is also included in the collection. Radio communication between vessels at sea and land bases has been important ever since time of Titanic, both for safety at sea and for contact between seaman and their relatives at home. Equipment for telegraphers at sea and the complete base station that was used at the Gothenburg Radio Station, a complete radio from MS Stena Gothica and different types of lifeboat radios - all this exhibited at the Radio Museum. People who served military service as radio operators or technicians will appreciate the large number of Swedish military radios in the Military Radio section, and there are English, American, German and Russian radios to compare with. The unique radio transmitters that where mounted in English Liberator areoplans are also on display. The area of land mobile radio with mobile phones is a new area that shows the development within the area of telephone and professional communication.

Actually I found this radio museum just by chance as it is located in the Science park and close to the Radisson Blu Riverside hotel; clear signposts are missing but simply watch out for their large antenna on the roof. Museum is led by some...More
