The Radio and Electricity museum is obviously run by enthusiasts, and what it lacks in polish is made up by the welcoming staff. The staff is happy to give demonstrations of items in the collection if you ask. The small hands-on area for kids has some interesting experiments to help them learn about electricity, but we found that they were just as enthusiastic about seeing demonstrations of the player piano, gramophone and other antiques.
