"Em 1885, com a instalação no Castelo de um Heliógrafo para o serviço militar de transmissões telegráficas óticas, a telegrafia militar fica sediada neste edifício – conhecido como Casa dos Radiotelegrafistas - até à transferência em 1993, para a Serra da Arrábida, do último posto retransmissor que o Exército possuía em Palmela.

A coleção exposta - maioritariamente oriunda do Museu da Arma de Transmissões do Exército Português - inclui espólio representativo dos meios de transmissão físicos e sonoros, visuais e óticos (destaque para a telegrafia ótica), elétrico-eletrónicos (material telefónico e telegráfico), manuais de instrução, material de linhas e de medida e ensaio, equipamento TSF e de feixes hertzianos. A faixa cronológica estende-se do período islâmico à Guerra Colonial portuguesa."
