Canadian entrepreneur Moses Znaimer is best known for founding the CHUM Radio and Television empire. He's also an avid television memorabilia collector. The newly relocated MZTV Museum features several unique pieces, including television's first star - Felix the Cat. The collection also includes the 1939 World's Fair Phantom Teleceiver and a Baird Televisor. Modern television is ubiquitous, yet Znaimer reminds us, "There are fewer prewar TVs left in the world than Stradivarius violins."
The MZTV Museum will reopen on July 20, 2009 at 550 Queen Street East in the heart of Toronto. If you'd prefer a virtual visit, the MZTV site features six permanent online exhibits, including a 3D interactive look at "seven of the most intriguing television sets in history."
