Take a step back in time with a visit to the
Texas Broadcast Museum
The museum offers an eclectic mix of vintage broadcast memorabilia and equipment, which is sure to delight the young and old alike.
Come by and check out the “Lee Harvey Oswald” camera, which was present at Oswald’s assassination.
Imagine yourself as a news broadcaster or weather person on our fully functional TV News Studio. Listen to one of Thomas Edison’s recording inventions or discover the televisions and radios from days gone by. Make sure to take a peek inside the restored 1949 Dumont Telecruiser, plus much more!
The Museum is currently open to the public.
Hours are 10 AM until 5 PM on Fridays and Saturdays. We will be practicing “Social Distancing.”
We encourage visitors to wear a mask and use the hand sanitizer that is available at our ticket counter. Until the the Covid-19 Pandemic is behind us, we will not be doing large group tours. In fact, we need to limit visitors to 10 at a time. That shouldn’t be a problem for now.
We look forward to seeing you!
