New Hampshire Telephone Museum Goes Mobile New Mobile Tour App Set to Launch May 1. Today, museum visitors are provided the option of taking a guided tour or looking around on their own. Most people opt for the tour, but there are those who prefer to go at their own pace. "We noticed that, despite the amount of signage, people who opted out of the guided tour were not spending as much time at the museum as those who took the tour," says Executive Director, Laura French. "The mobile tour app provides a good compromise by enabling people to go at their own pace, but enjoy a richer experience."

The Velvet Moose is open for music and ice cream every Sunday at 2 pm.
