This review is only based on the Cafe on the roof, take the elevator to the fifth floor. I had a meze/breakfast/lunch/brunch which had been pre-ordered by our host so I didn't see what it was called on the menu but it was superb! Salami, salad, cheese, a yoghurt type thing, scrambled egg, bread and wine. There was a vegetarian... More

Ideally situated in one of Copenhagen's main shopping streets. Provided a lot of info Post and Telecommunication in Denmark. Furthermore, it's well set-up to allow for some interaction with visitors. I love these kind of topics, so enjoyed it a lot !

Nice hidden museum in the city centre. It's free. Especially for Kids but adults will enjoy the exhibition, too. There's a huge play area for Kids on the last floor.

the museum is really nice, you can enjoy it, but the coolest place is the kids playzone is for free and as an adult you can have fun at the same time with your kids, if you are visiting copenhagen with kids you must visit this place. SUPER COOL

Not a very interesting museum for the general public unless you are into anything to do with the post office and stamps. I found that some of the stamps were OK but overall not that great.

I visited the museum on a Sunday when I was looking for anything to visit, I would say it is a nice museum for IT lovers especially regarding the history and development of telecommunications. It needs a bit more of organization regarding the chronological events. It needs one hour

Very old, big building which had wonderful pictures, also had a souvenir shop, if you are interested in that type of memorabilia, souvenir. Located in a very central area only 2 minutes walk from Norreport Metro Station, close to a very good student pub, which sells beautiful soup, and great Danish Beers
