Museum of Telecommunications
by Bre Pettis
The Museum of Telecommunication in Seattle (a.k.a. The Telephone Museum) is a must-see for any tinkerer. Run by folks who spent a good chunk of time working for the phone company, this place is a treasure trove of gadgets and telecommunication devices. Rich Barger took my friends and I on a tour around two floors of amazing clicking machines, and explained the magic of telephones, switchboards, relays, and showed us how it all works. If there is a machine that has been used in communicating over wires, theyve got it there and it works. (There's a human-sized phone! There are a lot of antique ham radios, too.)
