May sound a bit boring, but it´s a really fun place when you are a family with childre, and the admission is free.

I do enjoy museums that offer alot of interactive displays and are focused on their exhibitions and displays. This exceptional museum offers postal service from the beginning of the royal comission straight through the modern day communications and technology. With a cafe on the fifth floor (pricey) offering wonderful views of the city. You will need many hours to enjoy... More

I'm always looking for some interesting and a bit peculiar museums and this one completely fulfilled my needs :) I was happily surprised by the high quality of the museum, considering it's free. A lot of attention has been put into its making, with games, videos and a full interactive experience. It's the kind of museum I like, where you... More

We went to this museum as an afterthought as we had some spare time before heading to the airport. It was indeed worth a visit and there was a lot to see. It's free to get in as well so it seemed pointless that it's listed on the Copenhagen Card and they accepted our cards and scanned them. There are... More

Interesting museum covering the history of post and telecomms in Denmark. The big bonus is the terrace where you can have a bite or a drink overlooking the city with much better views than those in the round tower!

We were happily surprised by the professional presentations at this free niche museum. We started in the video room on the third floor, watching movies about the historical role of the post in spying and about the first Danish hackers (English subtitles). Following this, we quickly toured exhibits explaining the development of communication systems. Take the glass elevator up to... More

It is an excellent museum for kids as well as for adults. Lots of displayed objects, even a cartridge, small rooms, old telephones - all about the history of post. Fascinating! It doesn't feel lecturing or teaching, it's very entertaining. Highly recommended.

This museum has many things going for it: an excellent rooftop café; a shop selling post office souvenirs and books of all kinds; and a surprisingly interesting floor showing the development of postal services in Denmark. Don't miss the "egg" on a carriage or the semaphore display.

The museum coves all aspects of the history of the Danish post, from horse-drawn mail carriages to the present day; and telephone systems, from the telegraph to environmental issues surrounding the making and recycling of mobile phones; computer hackers, etc. One section of one floor is specifically designed for kids (and I was gently re-directed by staff when I accidentally...

So busy site seeing this morning that we didn't get round to lunch till mid afternoon. We sat outside at the rooftop cafe here. The service was great and so were the views. We were all hungry and I had no trouble finishing the brunch plate. Lovely sausages, bacon and scrambled eggs, tasty pancakes and maple syrup and my favourite... More
