Admiralty House Museum & Archives is located in the former residential quarters of HM wireless station. Built by the Marconi Telegraph company for the British Navy during the First World War, the station was part of a global communication network; it linked the Admiralty with its ships on the water, intercepted German naval transmissions, and tracked icebergs and ships in distress. The museum offers tours of the historic building and features temporary exhibits in the newly renovated Annex.
