  • KMRE's Transmitter is no more

    The museum has been deluged with calls about KMRE. Why cant I get KMRE on my radio dial? The KMRE transmitter has burned out completely. We will be off the air until further notice. KMRE is still streaming online at kmre.org . If you'd care to donate anything at all to help us get a new transmitter, please donate at sparkmuseum.org, kmre.org, or in person or by phone at the Spark Museum of Electrical Invention, 1312 Bay Street, Bellingham, WA 98225. All donations are tax deductible. Thank you for listening.

    The Museum is offering our awesome new MegaZapper Electrical Show every Saturday & Sunday at 2:30 p.m. --children under the age of 5 are encouraged not to attend, as part of the show, though safe, can be suddenly very loud. The Show features The MegaZapper, one of the largest Tesla coil "lightning machines" in the country, where, for a donation, adult visitors (18 years of age and older) can enter the Lightning Cage and get up close and personal with 4 million volts of loose electricity!

  • Science at SPARK

    Do you know a kid who likes to build, create or take things apart? Then bring them in to one of our workshops. We'll be running a couple SPARK Labs over spring break and our Robotics Workshop throughout the spring. These are a great way for children to satisfy both their curiosity and creativity. Please see the event calendar for specific dates and times.
