  1. Wow that red phone box just fits. .My mum had one of the phones in the pics, mums was black and the one in the pic is white, it was almost indestructible.

    • It’s a GPO 300 series in ivory (hard to be totally sure of the exact model without having a better look around it). Ericsson design. Probably one of the most popular phones in the UK until the classic red GPO 700 series phones came about.

  2. I wanna sneak in there one day, then hook them all up to the same number. When the room fills up, I’d totally call and watch everybody jump outta their skin! HaHaHA!!

  3. Looks like the best place to go for those working in the telecom industry, including me 🙂 How much, if anything, must visitors pay to visit the museum? Thanks.
