Vintage mobile phone museum opens in Slovakia


Collecting various things can be a hobby. When the hobby reaches the level of passion people like Stefan Polgari do creative things like building a smart phone museum.

Now that is surprising. We have seen people indulged in habit of collecting coins, stickers, postage stamps, guns or vintage vehicles. Living in Slovakia, Stefan Polgari, built a museum featuring about 3, 500 smart phones. Stefan is a 26 years old online marketing specialist.


Anyone can visit the museum but it is necessary to have an appointment to enter the museum.

Stefan built the museum in only two rooms of his own house. The museum consists chiefly of vintage phones like Siemens S4 model and Nokia 3310. Stefan Polgari collected these phone in two years.

In an interview he said,

“It’s hard to say which phone is most valuable to me, perhaps the Nokia 350i Star Wars edition”.

Samuel West from EU, Sweden, is another gadget lover who collects failed gadgets and has his own mobile phone museum where these gadgets are displayed.

He is 43 year old and has collected 51 gadgets like perfumes launched by motorcycle manufacturing giant Harley Davidson, Google’s Glass with AR support and built in camera, and Newton, a personal digital assistant developed by Apple.

Samuel said,

“We know that 80 to 90 percent of innovation projects, they fail and you never read about them. And if there’s anything we can do from these failures, is learn from them.”
