I had never given much thought to communication and how it developed. This museum was wonderful. Great interactive displays were available for both adults and children. As the museum moved into the 20th century, I started to recognize elements of my childhood. Then elements of my adulthood (early computers). We had a 2 year old grandson who was free to... More

This is one of my favourite museums - exploring a very different concept to traditional museums in an interactive way. There are so many activities; make sure that you leave enough time to enjoy them all. I regret only arriving an hour and a half before closing as there was so much more to see. Highly recommend to those who... More

Went on a typical rainy day, hoping the Fun Pass would be enough - it isn't. Lines for the interactive exhibits on a non-busy day. Mostly old, out of date technology that we don't need to be reminded of. Even the grown up visitors were bored.

This interesting little museum embraces a display of historical developments in communications technology and a review of some of the corresponding societal issues. It has good exhibits covering a wide field ranging from quill writing and the evolution of the postal service and telegraphy to the early days of radio/TV broadcasting in Switzerland, mobile telephony and modern digital culture. Children... More

This museum is pretty awesome! You can learn many things about the history of post, telephone, telegram, computers and internet, whereas you can interact with most of them to see how things work. Although mostly invaded by children, I enjoyed a lot and took a trip down the memory lane as I saw how technology grew thus far. First computers,... More

What a miserable excuse for a museum. It was formerly known as the Post Museum and as such it covered a wide range of topics. This latest version however has shunted the countries world famous post service into a badly lit, badly displayed corner and the postage stamp vault. The rest of the museum is a rather nasty collection of... More

brilliant to remember what used to be normal, and now seems almost unreal. It's easy to reach, great fun, interesting, educating and certainly good for all ages. Families can spend time there with everyone enjoying it.

This is a very good musuem, but it's covering a specialized topic. If you are not really interested in communication by Post, Telephone, Telegraph, or computer/Internet you won't like it. For those of us who have the interest it is quite a treat. I only went to the permanent exhibits - at the admission desk they told me the temporary... More
