Telephone Museum Sign in Three Dimensions!


Telephone Museum Installs New Sign!

No longer must you be standing directly in front of doors to know there's a museum in the vicinity

By Geoffrey Plant [ Fri Nov 13 2015 1:51 PM ]

Since opening in 1997, The Telephone Museum of New Mexico has been a hidden gem among Albuquerque museums –quite literally, due to its only signage consisting of two dimensional lettering on recessed entrance doors. Alibi is happy to report the long-time-coming of a three dimensional sign outside the downtown museum.

Museum vice-chair Tom Baker was overseeing the sign installation today and predicted that the improved signage would increase museum attendance, which he said has already increased since the removal of the 4th street pedestrian mall. For those who don't know, The Telephone Museum of New Mexico has three full floors of telephones, switchboards, paraphernalia, diaries and phone co. records and much much more. Among the telephones on display are some of the grooviest oddball phones from the '60s and 70's you will ever, ever see.

The Telephone Museum of New Mexico is open from 10:00am to 1:30pm every day and is staffed entirely by volunteers. Admission ranges from 1.00 to 4.00. The museum is located in Downtown Albuquerque at 110 4th NW, north of Central.
