“Great for Kids - and to send a free postcard home.”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

We dropped in here on the last day of our short break to give the kids a chance to let off some steam in the free play area. Surprised how interesting the museum was both for children and adults. On leaving we were asked if we wanted to send a free postcard back home. Great place.

“All the information you could ever want about Danish communication”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

This museum is surprisingly rich in exhibits, information, and interactive opportunities. If you have even a tiny interest in the history of Danish communication, I highly recommend this! Much, but not all of the information is in both Danish and English (some of the descriptions of individual photos or pieces are just in Danish)

“Went for our kid”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

If you happen to be walking in the pedestrian area shopping and find your child reaching the end of their patience, I would recommend heading in the post and tele museum. It is free and has a nice children's museum/play area on the top floor

“Central free museum attraction”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

If you like to travel a bit in time and somehow is interested in communication, this museum is for you. Especially Danish citizens will find this museum interesting for its collection of phones and other old means of communication. But everybody should take a look - and not forget to take the elevator to the top for a up of coffee on the roof of Copenhagen - or even better: enjoy a brunch which is incredible in the cafe!

“Museum is a little boring, but they have an awesome indoor playground.”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

While the museum have a few cool things (ie. sheep made out of old phone cords), I must admit that it quickly becomes boring.

However, the museum is NOT the reason you want to go there. If you have kids, you will love the indoor playground. The kids can dress up as the mail man and deliver letters to famous Danes in a miniature Copenhagen setting. Delivering mail to H.C. Andersen is fun. Even for the adults :-)
