I picked up this book because it looked interesting. It lists 126 places that you can visit. Most of these places are museums, parks, or man-made structures. Since the book was published in 1995, I checked out a few on the internet to make sure they were still open, they were. I didn’t check all 126. There are some interesting places in the book. Some examples are, the Johnson Victrola Museum in Dover, DE. It has several dozen Victrolas from the early 1900’s. During the tour records are played on some of the machines. They also
have photos of some of the famous Victrola recording artists. Admission is free, they take donations. In Linthicum, Md there is the Historical Electronics Museum. The museum
covers everything from telegraph, radio, radar to satellites. Some of the displays are interactive. Admission if free.
Most of the sites in this book are free or low cost. I haven’t been to any of them. Some
of them sound interesting enough that if I’m in the area I would probably check them out.
The book includes sites in Maryland, Pennsylvania, Delaware, New Jersey, and DC.
History buffs and people with children would probably be interested.
