Default Re: "Energetica" museum in Amsterdam

Continuing with the museum thread, on a recent visit to Paris I took time out to visit 'Le Musee de Radio France'. This museum is situated in a splendid building, 'La Maison de Radio France', easily accessable by the No 72 bus. Entrance is 5 and there is a splendid glossy book showing lots of the exhibits for 10. There are two sessions a day, morning and 14.30 in the afternoon. (It is important to get there on time.) It is a conducted tour and although in French everything is obvious. The museum is laid out in chronological order of development of radio and TV. There are some good mock ups of early studios and the tour concludes with a visit to one of the Radio France concert halls. The only disadvantage is that one cannot linger to look at exhibits of specific interest.
Well worth a visit.
