The museum is ok but the cafe on the roof is amazing. They offer very nice dishes at reasonable prices. The view from the roof was really nice.

there's not a lot to this museum, but it has a free play area upstairs where the kids can climb, slide and deliver mail. How fun is that? Plenty if you're a kid and it's raining cats and dogs outside!

I visited in December. The museum is okay, but I think it is more kid orientated since they have a play area on the top floor and various activities for children. Overall, it was an okay visit for a solo traveler.

Every time we visit Copenhagen, this is our kids' no. 1 stop; the indoor playground and making stamps. The playground is still free and good fun for the younger ones (thus the two star rating). However, while making stamps used to be free, it now not only costs DKK50 per person to walk through a mandatory exhibition to get to... More

The museum is very interesting, particularly if you are in to the history of post. However, three things make it really special: 1) Great location (Tired of shopping? Pop in for a break and a bit of culture), 2) A very good free play&learn -area for kids, 3) Their restaurant on top floor with an amazing view over the city.

Having worked for the same business in New Zealand in the 1960's, this museum was not to be missed! The exhibits range from the core early business; letter delivery, then to telegraph - morse code initially - and ending in the computer age with a display of printed circuit boards. There is a photo display showing activities ranging over quite... More

Staying in Indre By (Inner City)

Neighborhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
