Bellingham Radio Museum: Nationally recognized for its outstanding collection of vintage radios and other examples of broadcast and entertainment technology from the early 20th century. The Museum encourages visitors to have a "hands-on" experience and to actually operate many items in the collection. The staff is prepared to demonstrate the objects on display, so that the wonder of the radio era really comes alive. The museum was established in 1989 by Mr. Jonathan Winter, who remains Curator and President. Today, the Museum has grown to include more than 1,200 radios, televisions, recording devices and players. (360) 671-4663, www.antique-radio.org/ for more information.
