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. Check out more Doors Open events at toronto.ca.
