The radio section illustrates the developments in electronics from Thomas Edison’s Phonograph of 1877, the acoustic gramophones , Valdemar Poulsen’s invention of electromagnetic recording, Marconi’s electric arc telegraph and the first television sets.
The Museum also has an example of the world’s first loudspeaker, the Magnavox, invented by Peter Laurids Jensen of Hesnæs (close to Stubbekøbing). The exhibition contains a broad selection of examples illustrating the history of radio from the earliest days up to modern times.
Every year there is a thematic display about technical developments or specific manufacturers.
The Radio section was established in 1982 by Benny Ahlburg.
