“discover the history of the telephone industry”
The Frank H. Woods Telephone Museum is located at 2047 "M" Street in Lincoln, Nebraska. Its goal is to educate the general public about the history of the telephone industry. The museum was featured in the 2008 Film Yes Man starring Jim Carrey. The museum opened in October 1996 with grant by the Independent Telephone Pioneers Association and funding and support from Aliant Communications. The museum is named in honor of the founder of the Lincoln Telephone Company.
We were very excited to make this one of our quirky stops on our road trip accros the country. It just so happens when we arrived that the museum is only open Sundays or by appointment any other time. Was very disappointed that we couldn't see it. They probably can't afford to have someone there every day as not much traffic comes through often, and its location isn't the easiest to get to. Sad we didn't get to see the inside.
The Woods Telephone Museum is a wonderful place! Hundreds of vintage telephones plus phone booths, historical photos, switchboards, artwork, and many phone related items. I was just there for a tour and enjoyed it.
It's unique in that it includes a lot of history specific to Lincoln and southeast Nebraska.
The museum is working on relocating, extending their hours throughout the week, and expanding their displays. I'm looking forward to seeing this Nebraska resource become even better!
