We are biased - but this little place is great. Was a telephone exchange and AT&T donated the building to the effort. Very nice telephone timeline and big display area. Multi floor exhibits really cover the history of the telephone. And the people are very...More

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

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

Located in downtown Albuquerque, the museum occupies the original 1906 telephone building. We were the only ones at the museum at the time we visited and got a private tour from Fred, a very knowledgeable and enthusiastic museum volunteer. Every aspect of telephone history is...More
