Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Formerly the Museum of Television & Radio but now renamed after its co-founder, former CBS president William S. Paley, this Beverly Hills institution—designed by Getty Villa architect Richard Meier—boasts a permanent collection of more than 140,000 TV and radio programs. This is the place to go if you love TV. Every September, the Paley Center hosts previews of all the new fall shows, followed by panels with the creators and stars; there are similar evenings throughout the year for favorite hits like How I Met Your Mother. Even better: Call up quality recordings of historical broadcasts like FDR’s fireside chats or the Beatles’ debut on the Ed Sullivan Show. It's a feature that may seem dated, now that everything’s on YouTube, but the Paley Center’s screens and earphones have your laptop beat. Want memorabilia? Check out Daisy Duke’s actual daisy dukes!
