Welcome to the Virtual Museum's Science and Technology of Phones section--or, rather, wing, as in a physical museum this section's exhibits would take up quite a bit of space. There is always a bit of dust here from the new construction going on, so watch your step ...

You may want to begin with the Timeline showing a history of the telephone and its related machinery--for instance, did you know the technology used to develop the telephone also spurred the development of computers and satellites?

Next, we have an exhibit showing How Phones Work (and incidentally quite a bit of history there as well), and from there ... well, you can look at whatever interests you. Here's a list of current Science and Technology exhibits: More science exhibits will be arriving in the future, so keep coming back. And if you have any questions, or ideas, please feel free to contact us at telcomhist@aol.com
