Thank You collector community and friends of the JKL Museum. The outpouring of support we have received in this difficult time has been overwhelming. It was a big loss for us and for telephone history and we are still reeling from it. We are in the process of answering all your emails and messages, a very large task for our volunteers and staff.
As plans for the future of the JKL Museum unfold, we will keep you informed.
Your support is appreciated and valued by all of us.

JKL Museum – Fire Update 09/17
It has only been 6 days since the Butte forest fire destroyed the American Museum of Telephony aka the JKL Museum of Telephony.
The site is still smoking and fire crews were still putting out hot spots today.
It is our intention to rebuild the museum and this involves lots of careful planning which will take some time.
In the mean time we would like to thank everyone for their ongoing support and please check our homepage at http://jklmuseum.com/ to see how you can help the JKL Museum of Telephony.
The American Museum of Telephony aka JKL Museum of Telephony was destroyed in a fire but we plan to rebuild something.
We do not yet know how, where or when but the JKL Museum of Telephony aka American Museum of Telephony is here to stay.
We hope to have more news soon.
The JKL Museum / American Museum of Telephony and surrounding residences were lost to fire last night (September 10 2015).
The community of Mountain Ranch CA where the museum was located may also be affected. We were told by firefighters that the museum burned to the ground. Currently no one can get into the area. The fire is called the Butte fire. As soon as we have more news we will post it on our website: http://jklmuseum.com
