The National Telephone Kiosk Collection (the telephone box museum) is home to over 25 telephone kiosks – dating back decades.

Situated in Avoncroft Museum in Bromsgrove, West Midlands it’s a great addition to the Museum. The collection of telephone boxes is part of the BT Connected Earth project. (More information)There’s something quite fascinating about the collection – a step back in to telecommunication history. As payphones are becoming a thing of the past, it’s a great reminder of how we used to be “mobile”.

The National Telephone Kiosk Collection forms part of the Avoncroft Museum – so there’s plenty more to do too, with gardens and historical buildings also on offer. Phone boxes in the collection have been restored and many different styles are represented. There are even several images you can see which have come straight from the BT archives.

In addition to the phone boxes on display, the National Telephone Kiosk Collection is also home to police boxes, roadside assistance boxes, street furniture as well as the famous Dr Who Tardis.
