The 1 hour guided tour was excellent and informative. Our kids love the hands on activities with the switchboards and dial up phone. It is a must visit hidden gem in NH.

WOW. What a collection. We self toured, then watched a brief film, then received a guided tour. The docent was just LOVELY - authentic and kind, very knowledgeable... She related so well to the children and the adults. A gem of a stop, really.

We have lots of telephones and equipment that kids can touch and play with [big kids too]! We have self-guided, docent-guided and mobile-tours depending on how much time you have. Thanks for spending the day with us!

If at all possible, take the guided tour. It was fantastic. Our guide was knowledgeable and enthusiastic. After the short video, she gave us a great tour and then we poked around for another hour or so. Don't miss it.
