Jefferson Barracks Telephone Museum
The museum features an extensive collection of telephones manufactured from the early 1900s through the 2000s, hundreds of pieces of telephone-related equipment, memorabilia from the 1880s through 2000s, military telephones from WWII through the Vietnam War and a large-collection of novelty phones. There are many hands-on, how-things-work exhibits which encourage all visitors to explore the history of the telephone. Enjoy nostalgia from the early years of the telephone. It's a fun family adventure, an educational field trip for students and an enjoyable group outing.
