Default Getting the right radio into a museum

I love my visits to https://www.coam.org.uk/ the open air museum in the Chilterns, they have been open for a few weeks now. I did spot that one of their houses has a DAC90(A) in it, rather unlikely in a gas lit house I thought.

I decided to try and give them a Roberts battery (and mains, think ahead!) radio, it was accepted with glee and now is in position. I think it is better there than mouldering away in my collection.

The museum is well worth a visit, not quite the same in the current situation. the buildings are closed. Having said that doors are open with a token "gate" showing where access stops. It is 99% open air so "Keeping the Distance" is easy. Do visit and have a look at the radio.
