Welcome to the Wisconsin Museum of Broadcasting

The preservation of history is the responsibility of every generation, every enterprise. We learn from history -- we recreate the aura and feelings, good and bad, of our foundations , and we build our future with it. The Wisconsin Museum of Broadcasting hopes to be this kind of repository for all who visit us.  Broadcasting has become a world institution in little more than a century. In Wisconsin, broadcasting is woven into the fabric of every community in the state. Its story can be told many different ways: a chronological timeline, an account of station participation in public affairs, remembrances of the many entertainments provided for children, music lovers, sports fans and more.  The Wisconsin Museum of Broadcasting hopes to present those stories and more, for all to enjoy.
