The National Electronics Museum is moving to Hunt Valley, Maryland.

Our new address will be 338 Clubhouse Road, Hunt Valley, Maryland, 20231

We will be co-located with the Computer Museum at System Source, allowing visitors to see two related collections at once. This change allows for new potential partnering opportunities with other organizations, broadening our outreach, combining educational programming, and helping us to continue our mission.

Our Mission is to:
- To promote and encourage the study of STEM.
- To collect, preserve, exhibit, and make available for research various artifacts, documentation, and publications.
- To inspire visitors with an appreciation of the evolutionary milestones of electronics.

It is an exciting yet extensive road ahead with updating and installing exhibitions in the new space. We will remain closed to the public for walk-ins, tours, or visitor reservations until we are all set up. We ask for patience and assistance while we continue this process and hope to reopen fully later this year. In the meantime, we will continue to hold occasional sales while we pare down our collection and property. Soon, we hope to host fundraising events to help us further this transition. So, keep us on your radar as we move forward.

In 1980, the NEM vision began to preserve and display the history of electronic engineering and to inspire the next generation. Throughout the years, we continued to evolve, refreshing the collection with supplemental educational programs to bring the wonder of electronics and engineering to thousands of students and museum visitors. Let’s extend this legacy in our new location.

Thank you for your continued support of the National Electronics Museum!

The last day the National Electronics Museum will be open for walk-ins, tours, or visitor reservations will be Friday, October 28, 2022. This closure to the public is necessary to give the museum time to prepare for moving out of our current location before March 31, 2023.

For the remainder of October, we will be open for our regular open hours Thursdays and Fridays from 9am-4pm and the 3rd & 4th Saturdays of this month (October 15th & 22nd) from 10am-2pm.

We are making progress on our transition plan and we will continue to need support to make this happen. We are in the process of talking with several different organizations on potential partnerships, possible new locations, and varied support. Stay tuned for more details as the Board of Directors are meeting frequently this month and we will be able to provide an update through our website, eNewsletter, and page as soon as possible. Thank you for all your continued support as we work towards the future of the National Electronics Museum.

The museum is open today through Saturday our normal hours, but the majority of our main parking lot is blocked for construction. There are a few spots, but additional parking, which we share with Northrop Grumman, is available in the lot at the end of the building. The pedestrian walkway is clear for use.

07/01/2022

The National Electronics Museum will be CLOSED Monday, July 4th through Wednesday, July 13th. We'll reopen to the public on July 14th with new visiting hours in effect.

While the museum continues to work on finding a new home location and seek new sources of funding, we have decided to cut back our open hours to focus on working towards that future.

NEW HOURS starting July 14th:

Thursdays 9am-4pm
Fridays 9am-4pm
3rd & 4th Saturdays of the month: 10am-2pm

If you'd like to visit the museum outside of these open hours, appointments can be arranged at least 2 weeks in advance. Email [email protected] to make an appointment.

Wednesday, 13 October is International Day for Failure. Why not take this opportunity to remember that failure is not the enemy, but the fear of failure is. Day for Failure is a holiday to rethink, share, and learn from failure. Sometimes a failure is really just a happy accident that can teach us something useful about ourselves or our projects. Is there anything you’ve put off trying for fear of failing?

Inspiring the next generation of engineers

Our mission is to promote and encourage the study of science and engineering, using our electronic heritage to educate and inspire students and the general public. The museum collects, preserves, exhibits, and makes available for research various artifacts, documents, and publications related to development of defense and other key electronics systems and the commercial products derived from them. We provide visitors with an appreciation of the evolutionary milestones in electronics that led to the sophisticated products in use today, and honor the achievements of the pioneers who made these advancements possible.
