  • Very interesting. Chicago has allot of history and this museum has an interesting twist of different media. I learned more than I thought I would and had fun while doing it.
  • Loved it! Highly recommended!
  • Excellent museum , especially if you love the broadcast industry. A lot of artifacts that are historically significant . The television floor has a lot more artifacts than the radio floor which is a shame , not a disappointment but really , an opportunity
  • This place is awful. Far too expensive. There is barely anything to see on the two floors here, most of it is just plaques with short text snippets that could easily be read on the internet. There's some looped videos which are very short and not particularly interesting. Really not worth the admission fee. All the people who gave this place a good review were attending parties and special events.
  • The exhibit took me back to my childhood, brought back memories I had long since forgotten. It's great, especially if you're from Chicago.
