The museum starts with the earliest developments of electrical machines from the 1700s and spans to the most advanced X-ray technologies of the 1900s.
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. They have been featured on the History Channel’s “Modern Marvels,” Travel Channel’s “Mysteries at the Museum,” and National Geographic’s “American Genius,” as well as many other documentaries around the world.
“The purpose of this museum is to preserve these rare early technologies and inspire future generations of innovators,” said Ron Fink, RGF President/CEO. “The historical technology showcased at the museum led to the innovative technology used today at RGF. From the light bulb to the X-ray, invention embodies the American spirit and we are delighted to share these antiquities with residents and visitors of Palm Beach County.”
