‘SNL’ Exhibit Coming to Museum of Broadcast Communications
With so much history-rooted right here in Chicago, “Saturday Night Live” (SNL) is bringing its interactive exhibit to the Museum of Broadcast Communications in October. I know what you’re thinking, “museum of what?” Yes it’s true the Museum of Broadcast Communications doesn’t get that much traffic (or credit for that matter), but the new “SNL” exhibit is expected to turn all that around.
Just in time for the 43rd season the exhibit will pay its respects to the American television classic while drawing in crowds the museum wouldn’t normally see. Historically Chicago and ‘SNL’ have had a great relationship with many of its performers, comedians and improvisers going onto the show. The museum is hoping to not only bring in much needed revenue, but to provide the connection between Chicago and ‘SNL’ and paint the full picture for audiences otherwise unaware.
The new exhibit is immersive and takes attendees down the process of the show as well as some of the shows most loved costumes and sets including 500 show artifacts the Wayne’s World basement and a recreation of the opening monologue stage. Tickets will cost $25 for adults and will be open to the public Oct. 21.
