Following the Mobile Phone Museum launch event and the subsequent coverage on the BBC, we were contacted by aspiring mobile phone enthusiast, Lewis E, who asked if he could visit the Museum.
Lewis had been collecting phones for some time and was keen to learn more about the wide range of devices in the museum.
Given the pop-up exhibition was for one night only we were not able to arrange a visit, but our education team arranged for Lewis to be sent a few of the duplicate devices from the museum archive.
We were delighted to receive this picture of Lewis (below) and a lovely note from his Mum saying how excited he was to hear from us. Lewis, who has a rapidly expanding collection, has been using the Mobile Phone Museum website to research the phones he currently owns as well as identify phones he would like to add to his collection in future.
He has also been taking some of his phones to school in order to showcase them to fellow pupils and his teachers.
We wish Lewis the best of luck with his collection and hopefully one day he’ll be able to join the Mobile Phone Museum team to help us research some of the phones where we still need write-ups and also help us identify key phones that are missing from the collection.
