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

If you like to travel a bit in time and somehow is interested in communication, this museum is for you. Especially Danish citizens will find this museum interesting for its collection of phones and other old means of communication. But everybody should take a look - and not forget to take the elevator to the top for a up of... More

While the museum have a few cool things (ie. sheep made out of old phone cords), I must admit that it quickly becomes boring. However, the museum is NOT the reason you want to go there. If you have kids, you will love the indoor playground. The kids can dress up as the mail man and deliver letters to famous... More

A very good free museum in the city centre. It was well laid out and it easy to follow the guide. Lots of the displays are in English and tells the story of the Danish post history. There are interactive displays which would keep children interested and on the 3rd floor a childrens play area. The top floor has a... More

Great place to visit - informative and free, with friendly staff. The interactive old style phone switchboard is a must.

We found this by accident. It's free, interesting and fun. The kids loved the phone boxes and the horse drawn carriage. There's a play area near the top with a picnic room for lunch or a restaurant. I liked the shop for souvenirs, cheaper than the shops in the city. Hidden gem.
