Fascinating little museum that is staffed by volunteers that give it a very unique place in history. Great displays, and photos of how the telephone evolved, and what the evolution meant to us. There is one display that I loved, it contained "specialized" phones, Elvis,...More

I ran across this wonderful museum while looking for something to do in Albuquerque. With nearly 45 years in the Telephone business, I thought this would be fun. It was! They are open Monday, Wednesday and Fridays from 10:00 to 1:30. We had a nearly...More

We stumbled upon this little museum while checking out the walking mall of downtown. This is a truly strange museum --- 4 floors (half of the building each) are crammed with phones, phone paraphernalia, and a treasure trove of history. It is only open Monday,...More
