  • This museum is small but we enjoyed the visit. Some of the museum is dedicated to shows that were in Chicago so we weren't too familiar with those exhibits. Glad we used a Groupon offer for this visit...  more »

  • This museum sounded cool and unique. It was surprising in some ways. One floor is dedicated to radio broadcasting, and another to television. There is a fun page at reception that you can take and use...  more »

  • Wasn't really my thing. Lots of ready about on air personalities with a few exhibits and old equipment.
  • If you want nostalgia involving tv shows, this is the place to go. There is a wall full of pictures of actors back in their heyday. It was fun to go through and pick out people. Very large facility with a large lecture hall/banquet room for meetings or special occasions.
  • Perfect of you grew up in Chicago. The exhibits that really pulled my heart strings were the Garfield Goose, Bozo the Clown, and Svengoolie exhibits. I especially loved the old radios on display- the craftmanship is outstanding on those old things. I did the scavenger hunt, which made it a bit easier to learn things.
  • A walk down memory lane... the fact that we remembered so much of this speaks to our age but I think younger people would also like to see all of this interesting background on mediums they now take for granted. Worth the price of admission and it's conveniently located.
  • This is a great place to vist when downtown Chicago it has a great deal of radio and tv history
