Early TV Museum
The Early Television Museum is located in a non-descript steel constructed building in Old Hilliard. There are over 150 TV sets on display in the 4200 square foot display area. Displays include mechanical TVs from the 1920s and 30s; prewar British sets from 1936-39; prewar American sets from 1939-41; postwar sets from1945-58; and early color sets from 1953-57. Many of these sets are working.
They also have a working 60 line flying spot scanner TV camera. Visitors can see their friends as they would have appeared on mechanical television in 1930. Some of the prewar, rare postwar, and early color sets can be operated by visitors using pushbuttons located throughout the museum.
