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 one can watch a DVD as an introduction - but what makes it particularly interesting are the energetic volunteers who will answer any and all of your questions - this really is a labor of love for them, and they all deserve thanks/merci for conserving the equipment and indeed the building that could have been lost to history. There is even a possibility of having the visit conducted in French - just call ahead. Fascinating part of the history of the Cape - should not be missed.
