Telephone History Museum at SKOLKOVOs birthday celebrations

This year's celebration program was full and very interesting. Public lectures, panel discussions, various master classes, meetings with interesting people, to mention a few.

All those present on the day were able to take part in the intellectual show using neuro-equipment and meet with graduates of the school, where they could get to know first-hand about the successes and complexity of their start-ups. An Open Day took place in the SKOLKOVO library alongside an exhibition of the ideas and work of the top 50 business intellectuals.

One of the highlights of the festive celebrations was the Museum of Telephone History exhibition. Visitors could see in detail the rare telephones from a variety of different eras.

Those visitors with a genuine interest listened to stories about different exhibits. Children displayed a particular interest and were very happy to be allowed to touch the history of past centuries, put an old phone to their ear and dial away!

Today the collection of the Museum of Telephone History, collected over the last 5 years from all corners of the world, has more than five thousand rare items made during the 19th and 20th centuries. The collection is the most impressive not only here in Russia, but also, in general, on the entire European continent.
