Hard to imagine a more modest museum, one that contains a truly impressive collection of "state of the art" (1880s-1930s) telegraphic equipment. Surprising it is not reviewed in the current Michelin Guide - it really is a French-American treasure of what was a vital link between the US and Europe . There is a fine DVD for purchase - and... 更多
I must say my husband dragged me to this museum. It is the station for the first international cable between the U S and Europe. It is filled with the original equipment that ran the station. We started off with an informational video about its history which was interesting. It is run by volunteers and I just wished the very... 更多
This place is operated totally by local volunteers..mostly old timers. These folks are very dedicated and quite knowledgable concerning the old technology of sending cable messages across ( under) the ocean. If you have the good fortune to listen and enjoy the presentations that are given you could learn a lot about a bygone era and old technology that was... 更多
Housed in the original 19th century building, the Cable Museum serves as a repository for remnants, equipment, displays and offices of the very first transatlantic cable line, first laid across 3000 miles of ocean shortly after the US civil war. It's mind boggling to learn how they achieved this daunting task, with the limited technology of the day. Well worth... 更多
This is a small local museum dedicated to the original transatlantic telegraph cable. not really curated, but a lot of interesting stuff and worth the visit, especially if its raining and you don't want to go to the beach
We are glad to take a break from the beaches to visit this museum during our vacation in Cape Cod. It's wonderful to learn about the station and see how the technology evolved. The well-explained guided tour takes about one and half hours. My two teens are amazed on how people communicated not so long ago! The admission is free,... 更多
This is the actual house that was used for the American end of the French Transatlantic cable. The equipment was amazing for its time and the details we learned were presently in a way we could understand by the husband and wife team responsible for getting the museum up and running.
There's no air conditioning, so don't go on a hot day. The only other complaint that I have is that the sound on the video is bad. It's hard to understand, which is too bad because it was very interesting. The guide was really the nicest man. He really educated us, and made it so interesting for my kids, too.
What a wonderfull suprise this little museum was! A friend had given me a list of ideas for things to... 更多
