Telephone History Exhibit
save place
Hello? History Ringing
A telephone history exhibit may not sound like the most interesting thing, but you'd be surprised by what this little museum in the AT&T building holds. Put together by a retired Southwestern Bell employee, it highlights phones and related objects from the 1880s to 1980s to show just how much the telecommunications industry has changed—and how technical and labor-intensive it once was. Little ones can learn what a party line or a switchboard was, while adults can reminisce about growing up with one. Former Southwestern Bell employees staff the exhibit, so visitors can hear first-hand accounts of what it was like to work the switchboards or string telephone lines. The exhibit is open on weekdays. Call ahead for a tour.
