Mission Statement

The mission of The Museum of Broadcast Communications (MBC) is to collect, preserve, and present historic and contemporary radio and television content as well as educate, inform, and entertain the public through its archives, public programs, screenings, exhibits, publications, and online access to its resources. The MBC is an Illinois non-profit corporation that owns and manages two subsidiaries, museum.tv and the National Radio Hall of Fame (NRHOF) and its website radiohof.org.

The Museum of Broadcast Communications is one of only three museums dedicated to broadcast history in the nation. MBC is home to America s only National Radio Hall of Fame Gallery. Our 62,000 square foot facility is located at 360 North State Street (at Kinzie) next door to Harry Caray s Italian Steakhouse and Hotel Sax. This large space allows the Museum to expand its collections and serve a wide range of audiences.
