About the Radio Museum

The museum is a privately funded operation displaying many aspects of radio and is run by Ian O'Toole VK2ZIO. It contains many operational radios and other equipment ready to be demonstrated. Visitors will be given a guided tour. With 250m2 of floor space, large groups can be accommodated. Kurrajong is about 50km to the north west of Sydney, Australia with limited public transport facilities so that visitors are advised to make their own travel arrangements.

This site gives information about the museum and provides details of a variety of individual radios for collectors. Information on additional radio equipment is being added as time permits and will include background, technical details and photos.

The official opening was on Saturday, May 27th 2006 and it is classified as an Educational Establishment by Hawkesbury City Council, complying with all the requirements of a building for public use.

The museum is open most weekends from 10am until 5pm. (but check first - ph 4573 0601) while weekday or night visits for groups can be made by prior arrangement. Admission charges are $10.00 for adults and $5.00 for children. Useful information for tour organisers is also available. For directions to the museum see our map and instructions page.

Business card This museum is not designed to be dark, dingy and dormant. It is light and very much alive. There are lots of sounds to listen to, Morse Keys and buzzers just waiting to be warmed by fingers, teleprinters to be tried and several hundred radios and related items to be looked at. You can look into a Broadcast Control Room and check out the AWA Room to see what a once great Australian company achieved. There are radios from the Outback, tanks, ships and aircraft - maybe even one like your Granny had at home! Come and be amazed!
