History of Mobile Phones

The rich diversity of the Mobile Phone Museum collection allows us to fully examine the history of mobile phones from their inception in the early 1980s to present day.

We are able to bring the story to life through the use of vintage mobile phones that are owned by the museum, allowing children to see and touch some of these original devices. The size, weight and basic functions of the products are a source of wonderment to people who have grown up in the smartphone era.

We also have a wealth of knowledge around other historical dimensions, such as how mobile phones have impacted society, their role in shaping new trends, improving communication and more.
