Looking for a unique location to visit during Doors Open (May 26-27), when the city’s significant buildings are open to the public? Visit the ZoomerPlex and step into Moses Znaimer’s MZTV Museum of Television & Archive (64 Jefferson Ave.) to get a glimpse of the world’s largest collection of vintage television sets. Young technophiles will be surprised to see that the flat screens and hand-held devices they navigate so effortlessly are a huge departure from the boxy sets that were in use for most of TV’s history. The museum has an impressive collection: it houses more than 10,000 TV-related items and artifacts from the 1920s to 1970s, as well as TVs owned by celebrities such as Elvis and Marilyn Monroe.
