From beginning to end, we laughed and asked each other "Remember THAT?" This is a terrific museum and a revelation to the kids! They even have some huge plug-in switchboards, an old church organ and antique cars. Something for everyone! And the building is gorgeous!

This is not to be missed! Who knew? Literally 1,000's of phones, equipment and cars. No visit to this region is complete without visiting this museum.

A very large display of phones, starting with Alexander Graham's to the present with at least one of every type made. There is also many vintage automobiles on display. Well worth the trip.
