About the Museum
The John Rivers Communications Museum is located at on the College of Charleston campus in the historic district of beautiful downtown Charleston, South Carolina. We are housed in the Elliot House, built in 1803. Our four display rooms highlight a wonderful collection of antique radios, televisions, phonographs, telephones, magic lanterns, motion picture projectors, and other items related to the history and entertainment of the communications and broadcasting fields. The museum offers individual and group tours, a variety of educational programs for grades K-12, and many educational events related to both topical social issues and communications history.
