would be  great to buy one of these for the museum .

They were not. They were either 2 track for mono or 3 track for  stereo, 
and they were physically different from, and not interchangeable with,  
consumer tape cartridges. Radio carts were introduced in, IIRC, the early  1960s 
(I would have to check my broadcast equipment catalogs) and predate the  Lear 
8 track cartridges.
