“Fun for children”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

Located near a famous shopping area in kobenhavn (strogate), surely we must visited this museum. My niece (who live in kobenhavn) really like to go there again and again, and proudly to show the museum to us. off course, which most took her attention : indoor playground. Well done then.

“Danish delights on our morning tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2014

We ate lunch at the top, did not have time to visit the museum since we had a 5 1/2 year old who was anxious to continue our walk. The items we noted as we traveled up and down the elevator looked intriguing, we must go back!

“Never got to see the museum...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014

This museum wasn't on our list of "to do" in Copenhagen until we read about it here on trip advisor. We decided to give it a try and wasn't disappointed. But as we didn't heed the advice of other reveivers and went for the childrens play area first thing we never got to see the rest of the museum.... For families with smaller children it's excellent but our eldest (12) had to play hide-and-seek with me to really get into it.

“Well presented and fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

This museum is very well presented. It lays out the material in a fun and interesting way. The kids enjoyed calling each other on the telephones, 'riding' in the train', and exploring all the ways the post has been delivered over the years. it is also free, so there is no reason to skip this little gem.

“Excellent Museum for communication history”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2014

We were in Copenhagen in Ist week of May,2014 and on the third day we visited Post and Telegraph Museum.
As we stayed outside city, in Hotel Crowny Plaza, we came by metro from the station named Orestad, just outside the hotel. At Metro station, there were yellow ticket validation box, where we had to insert the ticket for 3 times for 3 of us. It printed the time and place of the validation. The ticket was valid for 1 hr journey on this metro or any connecting within that time.
Please note that there is no ticketed gate for entrance as we usually see in London, so be careful to validate the ticket before each journey.
We took Metro M1 towards Vanlose and got off at Kongens Nytorv, which is 6th Station from Orestad.
The Nytorv is the centre of the city and everything is walk-able from here and within 1.5 km circle, so we did not use any other transportation for site seeing.
While walking on Stroget, we found the sign post for this Museum and entered.
There was no entry fee. This is the museum of communication and thus we were very much interested.
It consisted of several floors. We started with the Ist floor, which was a post office set up like the one from the old time and some exhibitions. The second floor was Library and archives and had no access. The interesting part was third floor which has permanent exhibitions. It had mail coaches, Iceboat, age of invention from 1850 to 1920,various stages of telephone- from primitive to the latest, telegraph room with live demonstration. It had lot of film show in video room where we had selected our movie of choice. There was a control room with lot of instruments and took some photos as if I was controlling. There was a room for radio jockey which I operated also( for photograph purpose)
There were some games also for the children.
There were 2/3 big stamps with a hole, where you could have your photo as if the stamp had your photo. The little Mermaid stamp with my photo! Amazing!
The fourth floor had some temporary exhibition. The 5th has a cafe and nice view of sculptures.
After visiting we went to the ground floor again and purchased some beautiful stamps of Little Mermaid.
Overall, it was very enjoyable and learned lot about the development of communications.
