Need a consultant for a special electro-magnetic or electro-mechanical design?
I would highly recommend Mag-Num Consulting Services.
Types of projects they have worked on, and who has used their services.
They can be contacted here.

Science Museums Worth Visiting
Science museums and children's museums are great places to go and see things and touch things and make things work.
Whenever I visit a city, I check out their museums.
Here are some I would recommend.

Technorama (Oberwinterthur, Switzerland)
 
Fantastic place, go if you are in the area.
They have a large area dedicated to magnetism.  
I spent a whole Saturday there in the fall and was hoping I could be locked in overnight!
They must have the world's largest Wimshurst machine.

Exploratorium (San Francisco)
A fun place to visit - take your time looking at all the stuff they have!  A lot of good resources available from them.

Franklin Institute (Philadelphia)
This has a lot of basic electromagnetic experiments that you can play with.  

MSIChicago (Museum of Science and Industry - Chicago)
A huge place, lots and lots of good stuff to see.

Discovery World (Milwaukee)
They had a nice display on magnets, electromagnets and motors, but since they moved, they haven't reappeared. 
They have a great Tesla show, and a lot of other disciplines.

Swiss Museum of Transport (Luzern, Switzerland)
Trains, planes, automobiles, ships, submarines, balloons, busses, helicopters, trams - they have them all, old and new, inside and out!
See how motors are used on trains and ships!
