  • All three hours we have spent today in the Museum for communication. Not only the wide range with many things to join has and fallen, but also the building itself. The treasure Chamber in the basement is well worth a visit. Overall, a great alternative for rainy days and generally most definitely worth a visit!

  • The staff here were uninterested, unhelpful almost to the extent of being rude. There was no floor plan (although I think you can see a sign which is no use unless you speak German), few exhibits and ...  read more »
  • This is well worth a visit if you have stamina ! It's so well designed and out together it's just a pity you can't buy a 2 or 3 day pass as its too much to take in on 1 visit ! 
  • I loved all the equipments present there. Most of them are a mix between science and art. We had a lot a fun in the "no pain no gain" exhibition. The snake game where you have to run to hit the control of your snake is really an amazing and an addictive idea. Kudos to the exhibition creators. It's the most interactive exhibition I have ever seen. Attention to details can clearly be felt. It's perfect for adult and children.
  • Extremely cheap museum. Costs 4 euros for adults. The architecture is majestic and a masterpiece per se. Also, the staff was incredibly welcoming and supportive. Never met such dedicated fellows in a museum before. Finally, you can find an enigma machine there, so you don't even have to think twice.
  • Not expensive (When you go there as a group of maybe like 10 people you get in for free), souveniers are expensive. Café in it. I personally loved it, because it was stuffed with information. It even has a real enigma machine! It may be a bit boring, if you're not into "reading all the signs" definitly take a tour. I sneaked into one and the tour guides have a significant amout of knowledge and juicy information. They use headphones for not speaking too loud and distracting other visitors.
  • At only €4, this was a great deal. Lots of interesting communication equipment, and right now an exhibit on games with strange ways of passing them. The Pain Pong is fun too!
  • Great museum, not much in English though. The building is magnificent not only from the outside. The exhibitions are very interesting because there are lots of real exhibits from the past. It's very cheap to get in, and at the entrance me and a few friends even got in for completely free as a 'school class'. We didn't even have to ask. Sweet.
