“Step into the history of communication”
The Telephone Museum, one of Atlanta's lesser-known attractions, documents the first century of telephone usage in the United States. It is operated by the AT&T Pioneers, a volunteer organization of former BellSouth and AT&T workers. The museum is located in AT&T Midtown Center in the Midtown neighborhood of Atlanta. Nearby attractions include the Center for Puppetry Arts, the Varsity and the Fox Theatre. Atlanta's downtown attractions, including the Imagine It! Children's Museum and CNN Center, are only minutes away. The museum is easily accessible from the Interstate 75/85 Downtown Connector. MARTA, Atlanta's public transit system, has a train station with a direct entrance from the building. The area is also served by local bus lines. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution says that the Telephone Museum "isn't one of those eye-popping, thrill-a-minute destinations where you'd want to spend hours and hours,'' but it does recommend it for a day when school is closed and parents want an educational outing for the kids. Even for adults, especially history buffs, the museum offers a detailed look into the development and use of the telephone and its cultural impact over its first century. Guided tours are available with prior arrangement.
