Today the Museum of Broadcast Communications hosted its grand opening at its Chicago headquarters at 360 North State Street. This is the third location for the museum, which has faced a number of challenges in its 25-year history.
Now open to the public, the museum features exhibits related to radio and television history. It also has a special gallery (which opened last year) focused on its subsidiary organization, the National Radio Hall of Fame.
In addition to artifacts on view at the physical museum (including vintage radios, a working radio and television studio and Oprah’s door), the Museum of Broadcast Communications website is also full of archival material ranging from radio and television programs, to commercials, to photographs.
