The Museum of Communications

My walk yesterday took me to this, one of Seattle's more obscure museums.

It's only open on Tuesday mornings, and is a bit difficult to find (it's located in part of a US West colocation facility and has no signage visible from the main street it adjoins). However, this museum contains some remarkable artifacts from the early days of the telephone, and stands above similar museums in that a team of volunteers actually keeps most of this long-obsolete equipment (including ancient phone company switching devices and teletypes) in perfect working order.
