This unique museum contains 642 pieces of rare antiquities by world-renowned inventors such as Thomas Kinraide, Sir William Crookes, George Westinghouse, Benjamin Franklin and Nikola Tesla. The vintage equipment represents precursors to RGF’s technology with some of the world’s earliest ultraviolet lamps, ion (static electricity) generators and the oldest American-made electrical transformers.
