Is this museum still open to the public?

Are there any other telephone museums in CA besides the JKL Museum?

Wayne Merrit has information on this.  It came up in a conversation he and I had on the phone a while back.  I believe it is closed and in storage, but that is my recollection only.

Roseville is a suburb of Sacramento, California, and in the mid 70's I lived in a part of Sacramento that was served by the Roseville Telephone Company, back before deregulation and all the changes that brought about.  The phone they supplied me with at the time was an ITT.

I will have to go check out this place.  It's not far from relatives, some of which are served by Roseville Telephone/SureWest.

When I worked for Pacific Bell/SBC/AT&T, Roseville was a highly respected independent telco that provided quality service and although a small company, it offered some optional services before we had rolled them out anywhere in our territory.

Yes, it is still open to all. It is not far to our place and I go in this museum if I have no work. You can definitely view different historical telephones here.
