Dedicated to preserving telephone history

JKL Museum

We continue to make progress rebuilding the JKL Museum! Some of our cabinets are completed and have telephones on display. The displays include a few telephones from the 1880s to the 1980s. We will continue to add telephones that support our goals as we find them. Our 400 line SxS telephone switch is working. The Stromberg Carlson x/y switch will be operational early 2018. Still a lot of items on the to-do list and it isn’t up to the standards of the old JKL, but we are working on it. 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.
