Located in the beautiful Prince of Wales Armouries near the heart of Edmonton, The Telephone Historical Centre displays a variety of telephones dating back to 1878. Recent changes to our gallery have meant that we can now display an even larger collection at one time.  

We offer our visitors a chance to see a short film that outlines the history of the Edmonton Telephone company, take a guided or self-guided tour, and try our hands-on displays that range from a telephone switchboard to a payphone. 

We offer programs for seniors, school groups and child care groups and can partner with the Loyal Edmonton Regiment museum, who is located in the same building, if you wish to book a whole day group.
