I had the chance to tour the Museum of Broadcast Communication last week. There's just not much inside yet: a couple of old TV cameras, some Bozo's Circus props, Charlie McCarthy and his colleagues, some very cool old radios, and the electronic construction you can see from the street. The second floor will remain a flexible event space, with the Radio Hall of Fame (just framed photos) on the walls and some exhibits on wheels. The fourth floor will be an even larger event space with no permanent exhibits at all. The cafe facing Kinzie will be carved out as a condo space and sold to someone else.
Up on the third floor, though, will be the television level. They're doing stretched fabric shapes, rather like the Zaha Hadid Burnham pavilion from 2009, which can have rear-projection surfaces visitors can walk through and among:
The museum opens to the public June 13, though the TV level won't be open for several more months.
