Whether you want to walk-in or book a tour, we are perfect for visitors of all ages And fortunate to be located in the beautiful Prince of Wales Armouries Building in Edmonton near the City Centre.

The Telephone Historical Centre opened to the public in 1987. It was founded by a group of ED TEL retirees who were dedicated to preserving the history of the telephone and telecommunications  in the Edmonton area.
