Truthfully, I did not expect much prior to entering the museum. Boy, was I surprised. This little museum is jam packed with telephone company memorabilia. It is very well laid out on four floors of the old telephone building. There is even a bit of...More

This is a gem of a museum. It has 3 floors accessible by elevator, and is tucked a little off of Route 66 in Downtown Albuquerque. They have interactive displays for kids (and adults), and genuinely describes the evolution of tele-communications from tin cans and...More
