This is a beautiful place on a beach. Unfortunately, it was close to dark when we got here so the informational boards were hard to read. It is worthy of a return visit.
If you are into early radio and history, then this is a must stop for you. This is where the very first wireless radio transmission form North America to Europe was made. See the equipment inside the Headquarters Building then drive out to the location the tower was at.
I'll never take today's technological marvels for granted. Behind our modern communications and computing gadgets is the work of true pioneers who took risks to prove their theories and to advance science and engineering. Marconi was a giant among them. Although the actual station no longer exists, you can stand on the site and take it all in, especially after... 更多
Not too much to see here, but if you're visiting the National Seashore it's an informative stop. There is more information about Marconi and the wireless communication at the National Seashore's Headquarters.
The actual wireless station no longer exists but the information kiosks were very interesting to read. the views overlooking the bluffs do not have the best vantage points of the beach below but are still beautiful.
It is a 15 minute trip. The overlooks are not cleared enough to see the shore below, need to go off path to get to edge and see the shore. The historical plaques to read are well done, but the replacement of the original building with modern solar powered cell tower lessens the experience (especially for the kids) hard to... 更多
Coming here for 30 yrs never disappointed, was a favorite place to bring our girls and now my grandsons! History and beauty, biking and walking, beach is awesome!
This brick building looks dumpy from the outside, but is a treasure trove of photos, equipment and information within, with some early films of the area. There are photos of Marconi and descriptions of early work from his Italian estate. Distress messages from the Titanic were received here! This station was the North American end of the first transatlantic telegraph... 更多
A small museum full of interesting items and facts. The volunteers were knowledgeable, friendly and very willing to engage in conversation.
We had been to the Cape numerous times, but had never heard of or seen the Marconi Museum. This time we found it and visited it. Fascinating!!! We never realized that the Cape was an important location during World War II. The Marconi Wireless Station was critical to transatlantic shipping and coastal defense during the war. Great things to see... 更多
