City’s broadcast museum needs funding to open

July 5, 2014

You have to know where it is on Main Street in Woonsocket to visit a local museum dedicated to largely antique television and radio broadcast equipment and then also set up an appointment with its founders and curators to make it inside.

But Paul Beck, president of the nonprofit Museum of Broadcast Technology at 162 Main St., hopes all that will change in the near future when the organization completes a plan to hold frequent public visit days to display its unique holdings of media technology.

To date the group has held only a few special dates for tours of the museum in the former Rhode Island Hospital Trust Building or gatherings for industry professionals like the one offered to employees of WJAR Television last week as part of the station’s observances of its 65th year of operation.
