Recently my granddaughter and I visited the Jefferson Barracks Telephone Museum. The Telephone Pioneers spent 13 years and a total of 66,500 hrs. rehabbing the building. The building is on the National Register of Historical Places. The museum is open Wednesday - Sunday from 9:00 AM - 2:00 PM . Admission is $5.00 for Adults, $4:00 for Seniors, $3.00 for children ages 5 - 12 , Ages 4 and under are free.
You will see phones from the late 1880 s through 2000 s. operator switchboards from the 1920 s and 1960 s military phones and so much more that I am planning to go back, my granddaughter said to me on the way home "I would like to go back again.If you would like to know more go to facebook.com/jbtelmuseum ,or here's an idea contact them by phone (314) 416- 8004 imagine that contacting a phone museum by phone.

We stopped by not knowing what to expect. One of the founders gave us a full tour which added to the experience. Only open a few months but worth dropping in.
