The Vintage Radio and Communications Museum of Connecticut has been able to retire its debt to the Town of Windsor and is “counting the days down to its re-opening.”

An anonymous donor contributed $40,000 to help the museum meet obligations. The museum hopes to reopen this summer after seven years. It had been in East Hartford but lost its location when the state widened Interstate 84.

The museum director is John Ellsworth.

“This donation will be used to repay the Town of Windsor for back taxes and for a loan that was given to us to help us secure a permanent building for our museum,” he said. “These funds will let us concentrate on getting our doors reopened in August and becoming a tourist destination for the New England region.” A state grant and a loan from Windsor have backed the group’s move to a new location.
