basic museum with nothing to impress, some functions at special exhibit did not work at all. Free of charge to visit, but there is not so much to see.

An place for young and old as this covers a wide range of interests ie retro gaming, early land-line phones through to the newer mobile phones, delivery of post before postmen/postwomen, shipping & morse...

The restaurant with panoromic views is well worth a visit, not cheap but good size portions, very filling and excellent views. Good attentive service.

This was a delightful experience as I walked through the halls of this museum all by myself. There was a lot of history there and interesting things to see. I liked the model ships and to see how the history of communications has evolved.

It's one of the few cafés in Copenhagen with a rooftop view. The prices are fair. The service could be better - considering the pricing. But the view over the rooftop is nice!

At the House of Communication, Post & Tele Museum, in Copenhagen city centre, you can explore how people communicated in the olden, pre-computer days and how modern communication technology has evolved. The museum also contains a huge collection of Danish stamps issued between 1851 and 1998.

This review is about the restaurant. I have lunch there a number of times. The food is traditional. Some people might not like it, but it is authentic. The view from the outside is fantastic.

Popped in to kill some time on our last day in the city. Loads to do, very interactive and really fun. Would definitely recommend it.

It was nice and interesting. We did not pay extra to go in the children's section. We did not find the place where you can send a postcard (must not have been open). The bathrooms were clean and there was a tiny toilet and sink for kids. We'd heard that the cafe on the top floor was worth checking out,... More
