My nephew and I both really enjoyed this museum. They had telecommunications, radio, TV and the history of the mail service. They have a neat hands-on exhibit of how a rotary phone works where you dial one phone from the other. For my nephew, who is to young to have ever used a rotary phone, it was something neat. I...

It was an interesting place .. In the first I thought the whole area is great because the street in front of the riverside is full of museums and parks. It's very small but interesting place.

This small museum has a few interesting things in it but impossible to understand anything that is explained there because its all in German, naturally! It would have been nice to have had subtitles to the videos in this day and age, but hey, the entrance ticket wasn't very expensive and the cafe was empty so we had a good... More

Permanent exhibit (in the basement) in the basement has German-only signs. Rent an English audio guide for 1.50 Euros at the information desk on that floor. Audio guide takes 1 to 1.5 hours. (I'm a thorough museum visitor, so if you're not, maybe you'll skip parts of the tour.) Audio tour covers about 1/10th of what's on display, so there... More

Looks at all aspects of communication from the invention of writing to the modern internet. Huge numbers of exhibits. Also had an interesting exhibition on advertising, and also a cool exhibition on letters in a bottle.

Interesting place for techies. Most text in German, with it being in Germany, I wasn't surprised. Lots to see. Depending on the exhibition on, you will enjoy an hour or two here.

I went to this museum after reading the positive reviews on TA. Otherwise, I wouldn't have considered it. It was a real enjoyable experience. My son is fifteenth and really loved it. The place is very well organized. Divided into nine sections , ie signs, radio, telegraph, telephone, internet..... Very informative in an extremely attractive way. Take an audio guide... More

Backpacks have to be placed in lockers, which is not unusual. There is no charge for this. I started the visit by having a snack - coffee and cake - in the cafe. Prices were average and service was excellent. The museum itself is worth a visit. it is mostly static displays with explanatory signs in English and German. The... More

Have you ever seen TV footage of the Olympic Games in Berlin 1936? This museum has the original pictures shown in the first TV rooms in Nazi Germany. Wanna have a look at the notorious Volksempfänger - the radio almost everybody had in Nazi Germany? It can be found in this museum - as well as historic telephones, railway wagons,... More
