  • A fun place to spend a few hours. I was thrilled when my mom first suggest we check it out but it far exceeded my expectations! They walked you through the life of an SNL writer with audio, visual, and tactile example. The costumes were so much fun and being able to see the sets of well known skits was awesome!
  • A totally undiscovered gem of a museum in River North. The SNL exhibit is amazing. Really interactive and a ton of original items from the entire history of the show. Honestly one of the best exhibits I've ever seen. So. Much. Fun.
  • Always love my time and experience with the Museum of Broadcast Communications. Had the honor and privilege to intern and volunteer here from June 2016-January 2017. Great times. Miss everyone. Keep up the great work Museum of Broadcast Communications.
  • Neat place. Family-friendly and a good overview of the history of broadcast Communications. Staff is very friendly.
  • Good museum. Went there for SNL Experience and was impressed. Not sure what else is there. Parked in a lot adjacent to museum.
