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.

We wandered by and we were greeted by cheery people who clearly loved what they were doing. It was National Post Office Month, and they had teamed with the post office to let each person who stopped by send a post card for free. What an opportunity! Don't stop with that...visit this professional and informative museum about the history of... More

This was a jewel. The kids loved the museum, especially the play area with the ball pit and also the radio studio where they would play DJ. The free stamp project and free postcards were icing on the cake. This free museum is not to be missed, especially if you have kids.

If you're interested in telecommunications or the history if technology, a visit here is well worth an hour of your time. I would skip the cafe, however.

Nice museum for kids and family. If you pass during the day (I think mid-day around 1-3 p.m.), you might even get a chance to send a free postcard around the world. There are people outside allowing you to write and send a postcard: fun activity!

This little postal museum was surprisingly interesting and the shop had an excellent selection of cards and gifts. We liked the glass lift up to the café on the top floor and the way the museum exhibits were displayed with galleries around a central area. The little "cinema" was so cosy that we fell asleep and had to be alerted... More

Located near a famous shopping area in kobenhavn (strogate), surely we must visited this museum. My niece (who live in kobenhavn) really like to go there again and again, and proudly to show the museum to us. off course, which most took her attention : indoor playground. Well done then.
