Can You Hear Me Now

Can You Hear Me Now: A History of Telecommunications On Exhibit from December 2019 - November 2020


Telecommunication is communication over a distance by cable, telegraph, telephone, or broadcasting. On display, we have object from radios to cassette tapes to typewriters to telephones to cell phones and things in between!

Things that play music and tools used to map areas and find your way. We also have a small display featuring written communication with quill pens and carrier pigeons.

We have something for everyone here from technology from the late 1800s to the early 2000s. Whoever you are, get ready for a trip down memory lane!
Many items are on loan from local people, so you might see your friend's stereo or computer on display!
