I am interested in snail mail, being an avid letter writer and postcard collector, so really wanted to see this museum although hubby wasn't as interested. There is lots of info here, lots of history on postal service and the history of radio and telephones. Very informative! When we were there it was full of families though, with lots of... More

Is sudden cold, windy and wet day in Copenhagen found us walking past the outside of the post museum. As it was free, and we had seen the positive reviews on tripadvisor, we decided to go in. We thought we would be therefore the haps an hour but 2 hours later we were asked to leave because the museum was... More

I toddled a long here whilst my partner was working, his apartment was right round the corner so I thought it would be great to start off my exploring here. I really loved it, it's more interesting that it sounds with lost of history about the development of post and tele services, and it's extremely interesting, from how stamps were... More

This is a great little museum, very well presented and placed. Very interesting to see the way people were communicating 200 years ago, and also to see the surprise in the eyes of a child when you tell him to use a dial up phone! Museum also very interactive. A decent café in the top floor and a children's playground... More

Saw this on Trip Advisor and the good reviews encouraged us to visit. A very interesting muiseum, free to enter, with some fascinating displays about the history of the Danish postal system, telegraphy and radio, etc. Some of the interpretation is only in Danish but many of the exhibits also have English versions. Also if visiting do try the rooftop... More

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.

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)

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
