Housed in a beautifully restored 1896 building, the museum features an extensive collection of telephones manufactured from the early 1900s through the 2000s, hundreds of pieces of telephone-related equipment and memorabilia and military telephones from WWII through the Vietnam War.  It is located in the historic Jefferson Barracks Park, a 15 minute drive south of downtown St. Louis.

 

The self-guided, accessible museum has many hands-on, how-things-work displays.  The displays were created to inspire an interest in engineering and history.  

 

Guided tours are available for groups of 10 or more and should be scheduled at least two weeks before the tour. 

 

The museum is open Wednesday through Sunday.

Join the conversation at Maplewood’s Schlafly Bottleworks Wednesday, June 20 at 6:30 p.m. as we discuss "Individualism in America." As polls demonstrate greater prioritization of individual liberty and heightened distrust of institutions, what cultural factors and values are responsible for these trends? What are the consequences, positive and negative, of our society’s emphasis on the individual and personal autonomy? In an ideal society, what facets of individualism and collectivism would we see at play?

 

Theology at the Bottleworks is a monthly public discussion hosted by midrashstl.com that takes up the most interesting and important issues of our day, bringing together an amazing diversity of interesting people. It’s the best public discussion in town. We meet the third Wednesday of each month. Come have a brew, share your view, and lend an ear to others.' Always free and open to absolutely anyone.

Israeli born, St. Louis-based artist Edo Rosenblith will guide COCA visitors of all ages in creating a site-specific mural, blurring the distinction between artist and audience. Inspired by Rosenblith’s signature black and white wall drawings, the mural will reflect the thoughts, ideas, opinions and expectations expressed through collective visual impressions on COCA’s Millstone Gallery walls. Let Me Help You Make A Mural serves as a visual call and response that evolves over time, where the audience is invited to join the artist in creating a mural. The exhibition marks Rosenblith’s first time-based and community-collaborative work.

 

Curated by Yvonne Osei, Curator in Residence at COCA, the intention of this exhibition is to dissolve the boundaries between the artist’s private studio and the gallery space, inviting the public to become active participants in both the production and consumption of art.

 

Meet the Artist

Catch Edo Rosenblith at COCA on the following dates:

 

COCA Community Open House: Saturday, June 9, 2018, 11am – 1pm

Drawing Marathon: Saturday, July 14, 2018, 2-4pm
