  • For lovers of communication is very interesting to see the whole evolution of (Tel) communications but although its name says if you don't know the local language cannot communicate anything.. good for a ride if you appetite to decrypt the.. What wants to say the poet! I would have at least explanations in English.

  • Very disappointing! An accumulation of exhibits, sometimes not labeled or label hard to arrange. Missed detailed as positions of the telephony and the step-by-step development. Man would have can represent times vividly how the telephone network was built and is. Would a model man even the workings of an old lift selector can represent. When the tube was not much to see. The flyer where what is only English! Just go in without entry and viewing the building, further nothing!

  • The Museum holds the view on the golden section, which ends on February 26, 2017 and that it is absolutely fascinating. The entrance is greeted by three robots, amusing but help little. On 4 floors (three plus the Dungeon) develops the history of communication, from antiquity to the present day, with beautiful collections of means and instruments. Not to be missed.

  • If you are in to geeky stuff, it will be intersting for you. Very insightful for children. Architecture is magnificent inside. Expositions are great, but very few material is translated to English.
  • 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.
  • So good. The building looks amazing at night and during the day is very family friendly with loads of interactive displays.
  • 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.
