  • The building is amazing. A very beautiful, impressive building. The Museum is interesting and kindegrecht built. However, the premises have more impressed us. In combination with the relatively low ticket price, this museum also make worthwhile.

  • The Museum stretches over 4 floors. I started my tour on the ground floor and was there pretty quick to have without the feeling of much gain in knowledge. This changes (hence the "second look" in the title of my post) from floor 1. There are service stations again, the exhibition is well structured and clearly "to process". For me personally, the Department with the phones and mobile phones from the phone "Gründerzeit" was very interesting to the present. Seems to be working from the wall unit, only the earpiece was believed off over the first self voting machines up to BTX, ISDN, design objects, from the Koffergroßen installation phone for cars in A network to the Smartphones, without which nothing more today. There is the 'treasure Chamber' with a few very interesting, very special exhibits in the basement. She should be overlooked in any case, is nevertheless on the basis of their design and the objects so the icing that you can - cancel out at the end, and should be.

  • 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.

  • 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.
