Stopped in here for a quick visit with a large group of young children. They were fascinated by the phone box, typewriter and morse code machine. Was such a hit. Definitely worth a visit with primary age children.

Entry was free (maybe because it was Easter?) so we took a look. Interesting display covering the old telegraph service and how it evolved. For a small fee you are still able to send a telegram in Australia or overseas, that would surprise the recipient!...More

This little museum gives a good overview of early communication in Australia, including some hands on displays. You can even try Morse code. There is also a diorama of Beechworth and its now closed railway.
