vintageTEK is a charitable, educational and scientific museum founded to commemorate the early history of Tektronix. The museum and website is dedicated to displaying Tektronix products which enabled generations to create the future and in memory of those employees contributing to this legacy.
Our mission is to encourage the next generation to pursue careers in science, engineering, and technology by sharing this knowledge and history and supporting educational programs in our community.
We do not have predefined tours and tailor the experience to the age and interests of the volunteers. The museum is filled with working Tektronix products from about the first 50 years of the company. The tours can focus on many different aspects including the instruments and their uses, the technology that enabled these products, applications in industry and research, individuals that enabled these products, and to stories about the company.
We play company videos specific to products and applications, and history and capabilities of the company. We also have an interactive library for patents up through 2010 and employee photos prior to May 1970.
We have hands-on demonstrations for visitors of all ages and have toured students at age 8 up to seniors. These include sounds, games, computer graphics, music, and science.
Due to the highly interactive nature of the tours, it is best for smaller groups. We typically accommodate larger groups with more volunteers to conduct multiple tours simultaneously. Our regular open hours are updated here on our website but we will strive to accommodate your schedule if a volunteer is available, and admission to the museum is free.
