Science Week 2013

This year the Hurdy Gurdy Museum of Vintage Radio will take part in

Science Week – Sunday 10th – Sunday 17th November 2013.


A guided tour of the Hurdy Gurdy Museum of Vintage Radio, overlooking Howth Harbour, Dublin. Follow the history of communications in Ireland from the first telegraph cable under the sea from Wales in 1852, and a telephone cable in 1913, both terminating in the tower. The tower was used by Lee De Forest in 1903 and the Marconi Company in 1905 for wireless experiments. See the large collection of valve and transistor radios, gramophones, Morse equipment and other memorabilia.
