The volunteer was great! But, while he was informative, he was talking to us while we were trying to follow along on the website and get all the info....it would be better if he didn't hover so much and was just available for any questions during the tour....consequently, we weren't able to listen to all the stations where the info was on the website....And now have to listen to it at home....
If you're a fan of history, this is the place to be. Small but detailed layout of amazing televisions. Very informative app that you can download that acts as a tour guide. The staff are pleasant and very knowledgeable. I would recommend a visit here. Very affordable tickets for a chance to go back in time. Also, I'm amazed that the televisions still work! Check it out people.
A great place to learn a lot, admire old TV sets and the history. The original papier-mache Felix the cat is so cool, this 2 million-dollar exhibit is super impressive. Very well-maintained, friendly staff, awesome volunteer Alessio will make you feel welcome. Highly recommended.
I absolutely loved this museum! Everything was neatly organized and staff was very helpful and knowledgeable. Loved the new exibit they have as well. If you have the chance I would definitely reccommend checking it out. Also, if you do plan to visit just know that they have a parking lot, so there is no need to pay for parking elsewhere. :)
