The New Hampshire Telephone Museum houses one of the largest collections of antique telephones and memorabilia in the Northeast. Your journey begins with the real story behind Alexander Graham Bellâ€™s invention and takes you through 130 years of the history and evolution of one of manâ€™s greatest inventions. Visitors can crank a magneto telephone to connect to an antique switchboard and dial a telephone to see a 9-foot-tall â€śstepâ€ť switch in action. Optional guided tours are available where guests will learn how a simple battery spill evolved into the cell phones we carry with us every day.
The museum is open from 10am-4pm Tuesday through Saturday from May 1 â€“ October 31 and 10am-4pm on Tuesdays and Saturdays during the months of November & December and March & April. It is closed during January and February but will open for group tours by appointment. Admission is $3 for students grades 1-12, $7 for adults 18-59, and $6 for Seniors 60+. Kindergarten and younger are free.
