JKL Museum

Much progress has been made rebuilding the JKL Museum! Our display cabinets and walls are full of phones from the 1870s to the 1980s. The library is growing and getting organized. Our 400 line Western Electric Step-by-Step telephone switch and the 400 line Stromberg Carlson XY switch are working and provide dial tone to a large number of our display phones.  Still a lot of items on the to-do list including the outside plant, military, civil defense, mobile phones,  test equipment  and teletype displays which are currently under construction. If you want to see our progress, check the pictures below, or write to us and set up a tour. That is what it is all about, visitors coming to look at telephone history.

Thank you to the collector community and friends of the JKL Museum for helping us in so many ways. We couldn’t have come this far without your help.

We are still seeking quality items to add to the collection. Have a look at our wishlist.
