The Marconi-RCA Wireless Museum welcomes about 5,000 visitors annually and is ranked among the top attractions on Cape Cod. Membership entitles you to unlimited admission, and includes a supply of Guest Passes so that your friends and family may enjoy it too. Members may enjoy the  museum year-round, with regularly scheduled hours during the Summer and shoulder seasons, and by prior appointment off-season.  In 2022, season-long programs and activities will celebrate Chatham Marconi Maritime Center’s 20th anniversary and history, intriguing our visitors with unexpected information and experiences.

If you have yet visited the museum, we invite you to explore the Exhibit Galleries Overview, and to sample our visitors’ many enthusiastic reviews on TripAdvisor.  The museum’s exhibits and interpretive programs continually improve and evolve.

In April 1921, the Radio Corporation of America established its flagship marine radio station WCC in Chatham, Massachusetts, on Cape Cod.
Chatham Radio / WCC was the largest US coastal station, renowned among mariners around the world for most of the 20th century.

Having celebrated the centennial of WCC in 2021, we look forward to another 100 years of marine radio in Chatham.



Chatham Marconi’s Youth STEM Education Program complements the museum and fulfills the other component of our Mission. As in prior years, our professionally-run Summer Science program offered STEM courses, but outdoors in a COVID-safe family format.  For most of a decade, parents and grandparents alike have found that our Summer Science programs spark their student’s interest in science and technology.

During the typical school year, Chatham Marconi conducts STEM classes during evenings, weekends and school breaks. As a Member, your child or grandchild may receive discounted admission to these classes and special education events.  And this year, the new Chatham Marconi TechSmart initiative, successfully piloted in local schools in 2019, will provide rigorous STEM education projects to the 4th grade classroom to supplement existing science curricula. 

And as a Supporting Member and above, for a modest fee, you may reserve the Education Center for your private events. This classic venue overlooks Ryder’s Cove on the grounds of the Marconi-RCA National Register Historic District, and is a very special benefit of Membership.
