A brief museum review that might be of interest:

PhoneCo [Galesville, Wisconsin] is a museum which grew out of some
guy's weird hobby, in this case hunting and capturing
telephones. It is a working business -- for example, they supply film
and television sets with historically correct telephones. They also do
repairs and house an impressive array of telephones and related
equipment. The 'museum' is crammed into hallways, spare rooms,
the PhoneCo business office, and the shipping room. It is grubby and
poorly lit, so I may or may not have seen cockroaches. There is no
admission fee, and visitors are welcome to wander about at will, the
lines between business and museum happily blurred.
