Welcome to the official web site of the Connections Museum Seattle (formerly the Herbert H. Warrick Jr. Museum of Communications). The museum is located in the Georgetown neighborhood of Seattle, Washington. We are part of the Telecommunications History Group, based in Denver, CO.
Our museum features working Panel and Crossbar electromechanical central-office switches. We also have working Step-by-Step and Crossbar PBX equipment as well as antique telephones, switchboards, outside plant displays (poles, cables, splicing equipment, and tools) and a reference library.
We are open every SUNDAY from 10 am to 3:00 pm (unless otherwise indicated in the NEWS box on this web site). Note that our doors close at 2:30 pm to permit visitors enough time to conclude their tour. Plan to arrive early enough to allow at least an hour to visit both our floors. Typical tours take up to two hours (or more) for those with keen technical interest.
Suggested donation is $5 for adults, $2 youths aged 12 to 18. We ask that parents with children under twelve visit the museum first, before bringing their children, to determine the suitability of museum exhibits for younger visitors. Click here if you would like to donate to the museum via PayPal.
Take a virtual tour of the museum now and plan to come and visit us in person in Seattle, Washington. For more information, visit our FAQ (frequently-asked questions) page on this web site.
