I love my radio so a visit was a must. A comprehensive collection by Luis del Olmo who was founder of this whole concept and consists of material gathered over the years from his career in radio.

You could see radios from the 30's till today and listening very interesting reports from the 60's and 70's. and you could take a pic with Luis del Olmo the founder of the el museo.
