Museum of Broadcasting

One of the world's finest collections of antique radio, television, and broadcast equipment. 

Formerly known as The Pavek Museum of Wonderful Wireless, The Museum of Broadcasting houses a rich collection of vintage broadcasting equipment for both radio and television. Also included are hundreds of original television and radio receivers from the dawn of broadcasting. A special collection highlights 125 years of audio recording technology. And perhaps, most fun of all, children have the opportunity to use an authentic 1960s era studio to make their own radio broadcasts.
