We didn't plan this visit and found it during our walk in the center of Copenhagen. If you come with children this could be a nice attraction.

We didn't actually look round the museum, so can't comment on it, but we did eat in the excellent rooftop cafe and our 14 month old loved the children's play area! The food in the cafe (at least by British standards) was really good - we were expecting a basic cafe, but what we had was great - excellent seafood.... More

Now this is a must. It shows you the history of the postal service. It is remarkable to see how information has been passed on in the past.

This museum has an indiscreet entrance and signage, so one could easily miss it when walking along the popular shopping street. However, the roof top has a nice restaurant with fantastic views of the surroundings. Entry is complimentary.

Lovely old building with good restaurant at the top - with good views as well as nice food. We found it by accident and it served us well when we needed a break.

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
