Post & Tele Museum, Copenhagen

3.7
#15 of 45 in Museums in Copenhagen
Specialty Museum Museum
At Post & Tele Museum, discover how people communicated in the days before computers and smart phones. The museum features a huge collection of Danish stamps issued between 1851 and 1998, old phones, telegraphs, computers, and more modern communication devices. Send a message by telegraph, or hold one of the first models of mobile phones which weighed 11.5 kg (25.5 lbs). The permanent exhibit is divided into three sections: the king's post office, the age of invention, and the information society. Go on a 400-year historic tour and listen to H.C. Andersen speaking about letters. A cafe with a view at the roof serves Danish lunch.

Where to stay in Copenhagen

Most of the hotels in Copenhagen are located in the central Vesterbro or hip Indre By areas, though there are many more adventurous (and somewhat more affordable) places to stay during your vacation. As in the rest of Denmark, accommodations in Copenhagen are quite expensive. If you're traveling on a tight budget, consider camping along the Mølleå River or staying in one of the city's many backpacker hostels. If you prefer an inexpensive hotel, explore options in the Helgolandsgade and Colbjørnsensgade neighborhoods. For a taste of Denmark's art scene, head to the up-and-coming Kongens Nytorv and Nyhavn areas. Travelers who like to stay outside of the main tourist areas should set their sights on one of the city's suburbs, like the northern section where you can stay at a beachfront hotel or on a houseboat.

  • Brunch OK - but not "awesome". Too many small kids / families for my taste. Not enough meat.
  • Super section for kids... And restaurant with the best view in town...
  • Nice brunch buffet, coffee refills, games to play for kids
  • Simply the best place in town!
  • The actual Museum is not open yet, but there is a nice cafe and post office.
