ABOUT CHATHAM MARCONI MARITIME CENTER
Founded in 2002, the Center is a 501(c)(3) organization. Its mission is executed through operation of the Marconi-RCA Wireless Museum and the advancement of youth STEM Education in communications science. The Center occupies two buildings on the 11.3-acre, ten-building campus which comprised the former Marconi-RCA Wireless Receiving Station, once the busiest ship-to-shore station on the East Coast and a significant military installation (during World War II). The Operating (or Operations) Building now houses the Marconi-RCA Wireless Museum offering interactive exhibits tracing the story of maritime wireless communication in Chatham from its formative days with Marconi, through the 20th Century. The recently renovated Residence Building, also briefly known as the Hotel Nautilus, is now the Education Center housing classroom facilities, exhibit and event space, and administrative offices.
