Originally opened by retired Edmonton Telephones employees in 1987, the Telephone Historical Centre is a year-round hands-on museum that offers a historical and scientific view of telecommunications in Edmonton and beyond. The museum offers visitors a chance to see a short film documenting Edmonton's long history with the telephone as well as a chance to be a switchboard operator, use an old crank style telephone, and enjoy a guided tour by one of our staff or volunteers. They offer both school and seniors programs year-round which include the guided tour, a viewing of their film (hosted by their robot Xeldon), as well as other activities. Groups larger than 10 people are asked to call ahead to inquire about other bookings or to book their group in.
