Description

The museum features working Panel and Crossbar electromechanical central-office switches. It also has working Step-by-Step and Crossbar PBX equipment as well as antique telephones, switchboards, outside plant displays (poles, cables, splicing equipment, and tools) and a reference library.
 

SWITCHING

The Museum of Communications hosts one of the most unique displays of telephone switching equipment in the world. Thanks to the hard work of our volunteers, we are fortunate to have working examples of switching systems throughout the 20th century, including a Step-by-Step office, #1 and #5 Crossbar offices, and a Panel office.
 

TELEPHONES

Telephone sets are the devices that subscribers did not originally own but were instead leased from the phone company. The museum has many representative models, from a copy of Alexander Graham Bell’s first telephone to videophones.
 

OUTSIDE PLANT

The outside plant is the telephone equipment that is not inside the central office and those tools necessary to support it. This includes building terminals, telephone poles, splices and lineman’s tools all of which are displayed in the museum.
