InfoAge

InfoAge is not your typical science center: it is more like New Jersey's mini-Smithsonian with a focus on communications and electronics technology. It is home to over a dozen museums and exhibits, as well as community groups and volunteer organizations. Most of the staff and docents are volunteers who love telling visitors why this former U.S. Army Signal Corps Base, once known as Camp Evans, is a National Historic Landmark. The museums include Radio Technology, Radio Astronomy, Electronic Warfare, Military Vehicles, Vintage Computers, and more. In a historic location, originally built as a Marconi Wireless Station.
