Why a Telephone Museum?
Here at the New Hampshire Telephone Museum, we take stewardship quite seriously.
While the care of our artifacts, our building, our community, and our planet, are long term commitments, we make an effort every day. We installed rooftop solar panels in 2015. We've made the switch to LED lights in our main gallery, our special exhibit area and both our interactive rooms. Our daily practice is to reuse and recycle, improving efficiency and creating less waste as we grow. What does our future look like? Our intention is to add vehicle charging stations to our parking area while continuing to make positive improvements.
The New Hampshire Telephone Museum houses a tangible history of telecommunications which can be viewed via guided or self-guided tours.
Our knowledgeable staff provides engaging commentary highlighting important moments in telephone history, such as the race to the patent office, the undertaker who invented the dial system, and much more.
The museum features the collection of the Violette & Bartlett families who collectively worked in the telephone industry for over 85 years. Also featured is the collection of Garry Mitchell, another longtime telephone worker from Woodbury Connecticut, as well as gifts received from the public.
Our enthusiastic staff and our collection of over 1000 artifacts, have made the New Hampshire Telephone Museum one of the must-see attractions in the state, as well as an important educational resource.
