Hush-a-Phone, Scissor Phones, One of the First Rotary Dial Phones – 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 WWI through the Gulf War. It is located in the historic Jefferson Barracks Park. The museum has many hands-on, how-things-work exhibits which were created to inspire an interest in engineering and history. The museum is open Wednesday through Sunday.
