Celebrate over 100 years of the technology at the core of communication and connection in the modern world! The Wolfsonian partners with WLRN Public Media and The New Tropic to bring you a full day of radio-inspired fun and learning including live talks, workshops, performances, and interactives.
Museum admission is free for the day; tickets for the radio plays can be purchased here ($10 for nonmembers, $5 for Wolfsonian members; one ticket buys entry to all 4 performances).
