Owner description: The MZTV Museum and Archive seeks to protect, preserve and promote the Receiving Instruments of Television History. Whereas other North American Museums of Broadcasting feature Programs, ours is unique in its focus on the History of the Technology, as well as on the Sets Themselves. Together with related original papers, discs, books, magazines, toys and other ephemera the collection offers some 10,000 objects to scholars and students as well as the general public. The Museum’s mandate is to exhibit the world’s most comprehensive collection of North American Television Receivers for the formative fifty-year period from the 1920s to the 1970s. The MZTV Museum also aims to tell the story of the medium and to contribute to the understanding of the impact of television on the people who watch it.

A great, but not overwhelming display of television sets from the beginning of TVs. Part of a private collection owned by Moses Znaimer who was the genius behind CHUM TELEVISION/Citytv. His passion resonates in his collection of tv sets. This place can be squeezed into any day you are trying to find something to do. It doesn't take a lot of time to see it. Keep in mind, tv sets were design masterpieces or failures. They were part of the furniture/decor. I enjoyed visiting.

Went here for the first time today... Carolyn, who gave us a tour, was great and very knowledgeable- she wasn't reading off the exhibits, she really knew what she was talking about. Everyone from older adults (who will remember the old tvs) to young adults (who will remember some of the old tv shows), to teenagers and kids (who will be amazed at black and white and retro tvs) will find something to interest them! Give yourself a couple hours, then grab a bite at one of the places nearby.
