  • Very cool museum. We were the only ones briefing the museum at the time there were no other visitors. I think that people do not realize how neat the museum is. They have examples of every telephone dating back to the first one. You get to learn the history of the telephone and how it progressed. They also have several original switchboards you can view which is neat. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to know about the history of communicating.
  • Extremely impressive museum with lots of telephone artifacts and other items. Free will donation. Nice automobile collection also. Allow 1-2 hours to see it. We arrived at 4pm and they closed at 5pm. They were turning off the lights at 4:45 so we left and the employees beat us out of the parking lot
