  • Excellent museum. Totally fascinating. When you consider the timeline of Alexander Bell inventing the phone and where we are today, it's mind-blowing. This unassuming telephone museum in little Warner NH has an extensive collection of telephones & I personally think these phones would easily be forgotten, and in fact not known to our younger generations, if not for this museum & others like it. The wonderful, extremely helpful women manning the helm were priceless. We brought my 10 year old nephew & it just so happened that the museum was offering a "scavenger hunt" for the younger visitors & that was the real highlight for him (and if I'm being honest, the adults enjoyed it almost as much as the 10 year old!) Anyway, if you are looking for something with definitive historical preservation, loads of information you never knew, numerous interesting displays & a reprieve from a hot summer day, a rainy spring day, a cool autumn day or a snowy winter day, this is an ideal place to spend a couple hours whether you need an excuse or not! Please help support this local historical venue & take your family for an educational adventure down the phone lines.
  • A wonderful little museum. Details the birth and adoption of the telephone. Hundreds of telephones on display with explanations on how they worked and how the technology evolved. There are also interactive displays (who doesn't like to tap out Morse code, dial a rotary phone, or operate a switchboard). The staff is polite and informative too. I highly recommend if you like history and technology.
  • I've been interested in seeing some of the old mechanical switching systems since reading Phil Lapsley's _Exploding The Phone_ and this museum did not disappoint. It was great to see all these artifacts and see some of the old machinery at work.
  • Great stop! We enjoyed the rooms with the hands-on phones, switchboard, telegraph, and activities themost!
  • It was an enjoyable experience. Clean and well organized.
