After a year of diligent preparations, Shanghai Radio Museum, located at No 200 Tianlin Road, opens its gate to the public.

It is the first museum in the city themed around radios.

More than 2,300 exhibits such as radios, recorders, televisions and transceivers are displayed at the 1,000-square-meter hall showcasing the past decades of development in wireless technology in Shanghai.

Precious exhibits include AK10C, a radio instrument of Akwater Kent, an American who has brought the best minds of his time into radio design and worked out the model in early 1920s.

The microphone which has witnessed the founding ceremony of the People Republic of China is another highlight of the exhibition. It is more of a historical significance since late chairman Mao Zedong used it to announce the birth of new China.

Many of the exhibits have come from Zhang Minglyu, the warm-hearted collector in Shanghai.

There are also multimedia presentations and interactive games designed to make the tour more fun for the visitors.

Visitors that are interested can get free access to the museum at No 200 Tianlin Road.
