The National Capital Radio & Television Museum welcomes visitors three days a week: Friday (9 a.m. to 4 p.m.), Saturday (12 p.m. to 4 p.m.), and Sunday (12 p.m. to 4 p.m.)— and at other times by appointment. At the Museum in Bowie, there are two floors of exhibit galleries. Admission is free, but donations are welcome.

The Museum at Harmel House in Bowie, Maryland, contains seven galleries providing a chronological history of the receivers used by the radio listener and the television watcher over the years. Here, we provide a brief overview of what you will see.

The main floor is wheelchair accessible. A video tour of the second floor is available upon request for those who cannot navigate the stairs. The National Capital Radio & Television Museum offers docent-guided tours. Standard guided tours take approximately one hour.

In addition to the Museum in Bowie, we install exhibits at the Library of American Broadcasting, located in the Hornbake Library at the University of Maryland campus in College Park.
