Pavek Museum of Broadcasting
3517 Raleigh Ave., Minneapolis, MN 55416
The Pavek Museum in St. Louis Park, Minnesota, has one of the world's most significant collections of vintage radio and television equipment. It originated in the collection of Joe Pavek, who began squirreling away unique radios while he was an instructor at Dunwoody Institute in 1946. Pavek's collection expanded through the 1970s, and the museum opened on October 29, 1988. In 1990 the collection was greatly expanded with the addition of the collection of John T. "Jack" Mullin, a pioneer in the field of magnetic tape sound recording. Since 2001, the museum has been honoring legendary area broadcasters by inducting them into the Museum of Broadcasting Hall of Fame.
