Halifax, England

Warley Museum

Probably the smallest museum in the world, housed in a disused phone booth. 

Warley Town, a historic village in the Calder Valley, sits quietly on the outskirts of Halifax, West Yorkshire. The disused BT telephone box was officially opened as Warley Museum on Saturday October 8, 2016. Situated in the centre of Warley village, at the Maypole Inn, the museum’s exhibits of local history artifacts and curiosities, donated by Warley residents, are changed every few months.
