The history of the Museum of Telephone History begins in 2010, when the owner of the collection, the Director Vitaly Viktorovich Ezopov, decided to place an exhibition of rare office telephone sets and accessories from the mid-19th – late 20th centuries in the company’s office.
The collection includes more than two thousand exhibits, which can be used to examine how the design and functionality of telephone sets changed over time, and how the phone turned from a luxury item into one of the most popular necessary attributes of a person.
On the 25th of April 2018, the museum opened its doors to visitors in the mansion in the center of Moscow, near the central attractions of the capital between the “Mayakovskaya” and “Barrikadnaya” metro stations.
The museum’s exposition demonstrates the entire chain of evolution of communication tools: from the first bell phone to modern communication devices. The collection includes the devices from the First and Second World Wars, the first phones of the Swedish company Ericsson, a device that belonged to the wife of Nicholas II – Alexandra Feodorovna, and many other unique artifacts. The museum offers visitors a diverse format of interaction: from classic sightseeing and thematic excursions to interactive lectures and masterclasses.
