The InfoAge Science History Learning Center

We’re not your usual science center. We have a distinct mission and a history that sets us apart. Camp Evans opened the space age, saw the development of radar and is a black history site. We have a combined talent pool of nearly 4,000 professionals, giving InfoAge a rich source of expertise and ideas.

Our site at Camp Evans, NJ, is on the National Register of Historic Places.

InfoAge is located at the old Camp Evans base in Wall, New Jersey which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

InfoAge has an educational mission and its member groups in addition to having unique exhibits are also working to preserve Camp Evans for future generations.

The location is being developed as a Science Museum and repairs to its buildings are in progress to allow expansion of the Museum.

You are invited to join this excellent work to save history, honor the communication pioneers of wireless, WWI, WWII, space exploration, and the cold war.

From our Visitors

Who knew that this place existed? This is a fascinating look into the past, including some of Marconi’s memorable contributions to communications and a decommissioned military base. A top-secret location which has only been available to the public for a dozen or so years, it has an interesting assortment of memorabilia. The old-time radios in the communication exhibit brought back memories of my childhood, and the collection of military jeeps was impressive — it has to be one of the largest and most interesting collections in the US. What the volunteers have done in such a short period of time, saving the buildings from demolition, restoring them, and amassing the interesting collections is mind-boggling — I don’t know how they did it. Work is ongoing and will take quite a while to complete, but there’s still plenty to see now.

Not to be missed!, Sharon

I visited your incredible museum on Sunday and you played the vintage mechanical gramophone, and also the wax cylinder player for me. It was amazing. Thanks so much.

Best of luck and again, congratulations on an amazing collection!

Thank you for the tour on Sunday!

A friend, who knew about my interest in radio, gave me a brochure about InfoAge. After checking out the information I decided that my wife and I should definitely take a look. Upon arrival we were met by Steve Goulart, who walked us to a spot where he pointed out the various buildings on the site and gave us a brief history of Camp Evans.

It was a fantastic visit, which must be repeated soon.

Inside a decommissioned military communications site is a pretty extensive museum. Especially worthwhile is the communication exhibit, with old radios and TVs. There are some hands on exhibits. Before Christmas they offer a train exhibit. Be forewarned that this is not an polished museum. It is a local museum staffed by knowledgeable and enthusiastic volunteers. The exhibit rooms are well done, but it is in a old military installation. The building and site are part of history.

Hidden science museum in old military site, Michael

This museum is an excellent journey in the evolution and development of radio and communications technology. The museum has an excellent inventory of military and commercial radio devices to demonstrate the design evolution of voice and data technology.
