The Connections Museum Seattle is the country's premier museum for the history of telephony and the central office machinery behind it. Normally these amazing early computers and complex electro-mechanical systems were kept hidden from public view. But at our museum you can see them working and up close.

The Connections Museum features working displays of equipment dating from 1880 through 1980, and from many design firms including the famous Bell Labs.

We also have antique telephones, switchboards, radio and television equipment and outside plant displays that include poles, cables, splicing equipment, tools, mobile phones, pay phones and more.
