I received this email from Vince, I think he was a former buyer from us on eBay. This is a great idea. I have asked Vince to join the Forum.....Doug


Hi Doug,
 
I am writing to let you know we are building a telephone museum with this fund raiser -  'The Telephone Museum: Inspiring Enthusiasm for Electrical Engineering.'.

We offer children and young adults an inspirational opportunity to discover electricity and engineering through an understanding of old and new telephones.

In our workshops, we tear down new and old telephones and review how the phenomenon of telecommunications works whether it be a Candlestick telephone or the latest Smartphone.

Take a moment to check it out on Indiegogo and also share it with your friends. All the tools are there. Get perks, make a contribution, or simply follow updates. If enough of us get behind it, we can make 'The Telephone Museum: Inspiring Enthusiasm for Electrical Engineering.' happen!

Help Start a New Generation of Antique Telephone Collectors and Spread the Word!

 

The Telephone Museum, Inc., is a 501(c)(3) public charity and donations are TAX deductible.

 

P.S. You are welcome to sell your phones in the museum store as well as at our telephone shows.

 

Best,

Vince

They seem to be the same.

Lincoln, Massachusetts, is a near northwestern suburb of Boston, about 17 miles or so northwest of downtown Boston.

That is a really cool idea! A museum not only dedicated to telephones, but a museum that takes them apart for kids and young adults to see.

The Museum relocated to Waltham MA and had a Grand opening on 11/4/17. Has anyone visited the Museum? I live about .5 hour away, but have never made the trek. Anyone have a review of it?....thanks....Doug
