Originally inspired by the 1930s BBC Radio Transmitting Station at Washford Cross in Somerset, the Radio Museum houses an extensive collection of radios, televisions, broadcasting equipment and related ephemera.
The collection, some of which was previously displayed at 'Tropiquaria' within the old BBC building, has taken over 40 years to accumulate and is now situated less than two miles away at the former 'Anchor Inn' in Watchet.
The Museum tells the story of radio and broadcasting in Britain from the 1920s onwards.
Access to a huge archive of books, papers and photographs is also available by appointment.
Opening times are currently: Tuesdays to Saturdays, 10.30am to 5.00pm (Closed: Sundays and Mondays - except Monday 30th August).
Please note: The Museum will also be closed on Friday and Saturday, 27th and 28th August 2021.
These times may change at short notice. Please phone or email to check opening times before visiting.
