Man’s telecommunications inventions in his effort to overcome the barriers of space and time, from antiquity to today, compose the collection of OTE Group Telecommunications Museum.
The Museum opened its doors to the public in 1990 and ranks in the technology museums. It is a corporate museum, one of a kind in Greece, which responsibly manages its corporate heritage, through its operation. It preserves and exhibits significant collections, closely linked to the history of Greek telecommunications and OTE, as well as to the history of Greece and the evolution of society.
It is housed in a building in Nea Kifissia at 25, Proteos Street and features rooms for permanent exhibitions, screenings and lecture hall, library and laboratory. With 27 years of presence, it is also a member of the international organizations ICOM, CECA and CIMUSET.
The rich archival material and its collections, including 23,500 items and archives, captivate the visitors, while the Ancient Greece hall, evocative and subversive, reveals important findings about the ancient Greek telecommunications inventions.
Rare handheld telephones, unique Morse telegraphs, telex and fibre optics, telephotography machines, wireless communications, one of the first television studios, and the "contact" with objects from bygone times inspire and create new experiences. Also, the hall with the history of the mobile telephony connects the past with the present, preparing us for the... future.
