This museum gives a comprehensive account of the history of post and tele services with a lot of valuable exhibits. For those who love stamps, they have quite a good collection. It is centrally located in the shopping district, a very nice breathing space

The website says open Mon-Sun. We visited on a Sat, but only the kid zone was open. It was nice for the kids but if we knew that the exhibition was closed, we would pick another day. So, we're a bit disappointed.

Being an avid stamp collector, I just HAD to visit this museum! I was very happy to see that it wasn’t just a gallery display of old stamps. It was so much more than that! The museum walked you through postal and telecommunication systems throughout history and had very interesting artifacts and interactive displays. It was very funny to see... More

The 'post' (or mail) museum is a super good way to spend a few hours. It has an entire floor for kids, which works really well and it is actually quite interesting to see how we used to contact each other back in the days. The restaurant on the top of the museum (on the 5th floor I believe it... More

I cant comment on the museum itself - but the restaurant is my favourite place to have lunch in Copenhagen. One of its real hidden gems - the restaurant will give you amazing views of the city rooftop in a very Danish setting. Food is great - with the signature dish being the very tasty Danish platter. If you are... More

Eventhough the museum was closed for a year due to moving to a different location, the artifacts present in that museum is an insight which is sought by the people. The first floor explained the detailed scope of how the olden methods of transferring mails around the city. The other floors were not open. But the other interesting things seen... More

I liked the exhibition about the communication history. It was really nice and interesting, even for adults. It is a free entrance, so if you have spare time, I recommend to pay the visit.

I'm really reviewing the restaurant, as we didn't go in to the Museum proper. However, in respect of the restaurant, the views are what make it. The food was good but unmemorable; we all enjoyed our lunches but we couldn't tell you the next day what we ate. The staff were accomodating. Definitely worth a visit as the building and... More

Museum is set on a few floors in building where you can also buy stamps and souvenirs. Museum is well laid out and the displays/ exhibits/ recreations are very well put together. The telecommunication area traces the history of phone exchanges and does a superb job of recreating actual switchboards etc. right up to massive switching machines. Displays should be... More
