The Early Television Museum is located at the beginning of the Heritage Rail Trail bike and hiking path that connects to another park a few miles away. Eventually the trail will be extended to a total length of about 30 miles.

Over 150 TV sets are on display in a 4200 square foot area. Displays include mechanical TVs from the 1920s and 30s; pre-1945 British sets from 1936-39; pre-1945 American sets from 1939-41; postwar sets from1945-58; and early color sets from 1953-57. Many of these sets are working. 

The Dave Johnson collection of early television picture tubes is also on display, along with early TV studio equipment.

We 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.
