...way more fun than we imagined!

Many people assume that NHTM will be a crusty old building with a few tattered telephones dripping with spider webs. But the gang here likes surprises [and we’re a bunch of neat-freaks], so this gallery is large, bright, spotless and welcoming.

And while we’re not a museum that displays dinosaurs or showcases Rembrants, we honestly think that you’ll have a great time here; remembering the phones of your youth, learning how a man, that once wanted to help the deaf, forged the way to the creation of a handheld computer and discovering the many stories that make technology, well, a bit more human.

We’ve got lots of information on our website. Sure, you can find admission details, hours and programming schedules there, but we encourage you to stay awhile and enjoy a few of our online exhibits. With the amazing support of our members, we have been able to create standing-room only programs and award-winning displays, but if you can’t make it to the museum, we’ll come to you. We suggest you start with “The History of the Telephone: From A to Z”.

At the New Hampshire Telephone Museum we have a tangible history of telecommunications [seriously, we let you touch some stuff!]which can be viewed via guided, self-guided or mobile tours. The 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, much more. 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. But don’t just take our word for it. Take a moment to visit TripAdvisor and see what visitors have left for comments. Better yet, stop by and see why people say “WOW!” when they walk through the door!

Hey guys - Tomorrow night on American Masters is a story about Hedy Lamar and her work regarding communication
I had a video about making the Candle Stick Telephones you sell but not sure the video will post
My grandchildren love to come play on the working switchboard.
Found a sweet ride at the New Hampshire Telephone Museum ! Two paws 🐾 up! (Haven’t the heart to tell him it’s a telephone 😆)
The truth about black history in Warner is still being uncovered. (I'd be interested in hearing about related memories. - RC)
Fascinating place. Visited yesterday, will be back
This museum is in Warner, NH...I have visited it last year while on my vacation. My father was the editor of the Kearsarge Independent in the late Forties when it was owned by Senator Jack Chandler. We lived in Sutton at that time....My grandmother who had a farmhouse in North Sutton still used the old crank telephone. The signal was one long and two short. For those who want to see how their parents or grandparents used to make a phone call, i would recommend a visit to this historic museum.
