Event Description

Jefferson Barracks Telephone Museum

To commemorate the upcoming 75th anniversary of D-Day, the Jefferson Barracks Telephone Museum has created an exhibit featuring telephones used by military personnel. Housed in a restored 1896 building, the 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, a wide variety of novelty telephones and much more. It is located in the historic Jefferson Barracks Park, a 15-minute drive south of downtown St. Louis. The Jefferson Barracks Telephone Museum has many hands-on, how-things-work exhibits which were created to inspire an interest in engineering and history.
