Mission: To bring to the community at large a broader knowledge of how pioneers in electronic communications created enormous impact on evolution of society, and to stimulate in young people a new recognition of the practical andreal contributions to our quality of life that exploring science and the communication arts can bring, and to provide a permanent and living repository for the preservation of historically significant apparatus, material and documents relating to the rich mosaic of the development of electronic communications.
Programs: Museum is open to the public offering tours, workshops for elementary students and preservation of the collection.
The Pavek Museum is a huge collection of equipment from throughout the history of radio and TV broadcasting. I first discovered it about seven or eight years ago and have been back several times since, with out-of-town visitors in tow. The museum runs on virtually no budget, I think, but deserves much more exposure and support. It's great for all ages, too. Older adults will see the radios of their childhoods and children can see what came before the electronics of today. I absolutely love the Pavek!
