Event Description

Jefferson Barracks Telephone Museum

Kermit, Star Wars, Gumby, Beetle Bailey, Trains, Planes and Automobiles – these are some of the telephones you’ll see at the Jefferson Barracks Telephone Museum. Housed in a restored 1896 building, the history museum also features an extensive collection of telephones manufactured from the early 1900s through the 2000s, hundreds of pieces of telephone-related equipment, memorabilia from 1880s through the 2000s and military telephones from WWII through the Vietnam War. It is located in the historic Jefferson Barracks Park, a 15-minute drive south of downtown St. Louis. The museum has many hands-on, how-things-work exhibits which were created to inspire an interest in engineering and history.
