Here is a substantial and eclectic collection of TVs going all the way back to a mechanical TV from 1925. There are descriptions in both English and French that go along with the TVs so you get a deeper feel for what you're looking at. It's amazing how far we've come from the days when a TV was the size... More

A great, but not overwhelming display of television sets from the beginning of TVs. Part of a private collection owned by Moses Znaimer who was the genius behind CHUM TELEVISION/Citytv. His passion resonates in his collection of tv sets. This place can be squeezed into any day you are trying to find something to do. It doesn't take a lot... More

Went here for the first time today... Carolyn, who gave us a tour, was great and very knowledgeable- she wasn't reading off the exhibits, she really knew what she was talking about. Everyone from older adults (who will remember the old tvs) to young adults (who will remember some of the old tv shows), to teenagers and kids (who will... More

Staying in Queen Street and West Queen West

Neighbourhood Profile
Queen Street and West Queen West
Known as the Art & Design District, West Queen West is one of the most energetic and dynamic of Toronto's neighborhoods. Along with its great modernist museums, clubs, and restaurants, it's home to some of the funkiest specialty shops, ranging from clothing to stationary to collectables, and caters to niche and vintage shoppers of all kinds. That makes it a mecca for creatives, including hobbyists designers, writers, and painters. With ink on their hands and fabric pelts in their bags, visitors to Queen Street traverse the avant-garde blend of historic architecture and ultra-contemporary fare. Home to some of Toronto's chicest hotels and most modish java fixes, busy with street cars, and always suffused with live music drifting onto packed patios at bars and clubs by nightfall, the vibrancy of West Queen West is undeniable.
