Michigan’s only telephone museum. Visitors can sit in a phone booth, listen in on a party line, ponder mysterious tech such as the Hush-A-Phone.

Michigan Has An Entire Museum Dedicated To Telephones And It’s As Awesome As You’d Think

On a Michigan back roads day trip to Montrose the Telephone Museum is a must see.

Curators love to use terms such as “one of a kind” or “historic” or “incredibly rare” when describing items found in attics or stored in out of the way museums. Sometimes it is true and sometimes it is mostly true. There is a museum that can legitimately use terms like “historic” or “incredibly rare”. The Telephone Museum in Montrose really does have several one of a kind items, extremely rare objects and some of the largest specific category collections in the world. The museum is a town museum, genealogy center and a telephone museum. Yep, it is almost all telephones, but you have never seen anything like this.
