VISITING CHATHAM MARCONI MARITIME CENTER
MARCONI - RCA
We regret that Chatham Marconi Maritime Center’s offices and Marconi-RCA Wireless Museum will be closed at least until late May, based upon the President’s directive of March 29 and the Governor’s directive of March 31.
The Chatham Marconi Maritime Center is closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation. The health and safety of our visitors, volunteers and staff are our top priority.
We will continue to evaluate the situation and update this website as needed. We look forward to seeing you in the future. Meanwhile, please browse our website and should you have any questions before you can visit us again, e-mail us at info@ChathamMarconi.org or call us at 508-945-8889.

Plan Your Visit
Plan to spend at least an hour at CMMC. When you first arrive, watch our introductory video: "Chatham Radio: WCC The Untold Story", narrated by Walter Cronkite. We have additional short videos that will enhance your visit -- each is about 10 minutes long.
Take time to explore. Depending upon your interests, you may find that you want several hours, or to take advantage of your free second-visit opportunity.
Most of our exhibits have "touch screen" panels and audio to provide background information. You can send a message in Morse code at the interactive kiosk. Children will enjoy the scavenger hunt to identify items across the exhibit space.
Spend some time in the Museum Shop, browsing the wide selection of books, logo clothing and other items.
We would greatly appreciate your help in improving our museum. Please take a moment to print, complete and mail back our visitor feedback form [link to PDF document here]. (If printed 2-sided, it may be folded and taped to mail back without an envelope.) Or visit TripAdvisor to share your comments with future visitors.
