3 Years Since Faraday Museum Opening
This month completes 3 years since the Faraday Museum opening, on February 6, 2017.
The museum was created by Professor Moisés Piedade, INESC-ID researcher, and professor from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (DEEC) of Instituto Superior Técnico (IST).
The museum, located at Instituto Superior Técnico, is divided into three main areas: Instrumentation and Writing; Audio, Radio and TV, and Communication.
Faraday Museum presents furniture and equipment of historic character, with more than 800 pieces from the 19th to 21st century, in the scientific areas of Electronics, Energy, and Computers.
