A new exhibit highlighting the radio, one of the most important inventions of the 20th century, is featured at the Red Mill Museum Village. A collection of antique and vintage radios is on loan to the Museum from collector and radio enthusiast Michael Molnar. Mr. Molnar has been collecting for over 30 years and has generously co-curated this very special exhibit which traces the evolution of radio and shares stories of the cultural impact it had on society.
For enjoyment, visitors can listen to a radio from over 70 years ago, hearing the sounds of the time. Ever wonder how was radio different from today? Try to tune a radio from a hundred years ago and find out for yourself!
This exhibition was made possible thanks to funding generously provided by the Astle-Alpaugh Family Foundation.
