Auman Museum of Radio and TV in Dover, Ohio is near the top of the list of quirky attractions. Located at 215 N Tuscarawas Ave, Dover Ohio.
The museum features hundreds of vintage TV’s from the 50’s, mechanical televisions from the 20’s and 30’s and a 1939 model from the New York World Fair. Larry Auman started out years ago collecting TV’s from family and friends and eventually ran out of space in his home. Soon he found a small store that naturally evolved into the present day museum.
In addition to the TV’s on display, Auman has collected hundreds of games, toys and memorabilia relating to early TV shows from the 40’s and 50’s. You will find props such as TV Western guns, the bottle from I Dream of Jeanie and the broadcasting studio used by Alan Freed (the father of Rock and Roll) from his early days at WJW Radio in Cleveland.
