MOAH keeps 'Television' on in Palo Alto

The Museum of American Heritage’s latest exhibition, “A History of Television,” highlights TV’s early years, when it became a major source of entertainment and had a vast cultural impact.

The exhibition is slated to run through March 23 in Palo Alto.

“A History of Television” displays a variety of 1940s- and 1950s-era TV sets from the museum’s collection. The display explores everything from how a TV works to its social impacts. Attendees may view TV programs and commercials from the 1950s and 1960s, along with a collection of TV-inspired lunch boxes.

The museum, located at 351 Homer Ave., is open 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Fridays through Sundays. Admission is free.
