Founded by a marine service company that dealt with sales and service for the marine industry for over 30 years, the Museum of Maritime Navigation & Communication is comprised of a historically significant collection of maritime navigation and communication equipment and has made in available in its exhibits.
The exhibits and displays have a dual-focus: electronics and local maritime history. Objects from the collection are shown with their purpose, function, and provenance described. While all of the equipment on display was previously installed on ships, an interactive exhibit helps visitors understand how each piece relates to their own everyday lives. An electronics-specific exhibit shows how technology has evolved over time with both enclosed and hands-on displays to help demonstrate each object’s functionality.
