    Unfortunately, the main exhibition was closed for renovations; There was only the special exhibitions on the golden ratio and idioms, but unfortunately they have not so inspired us.

    The exhibition "The golden ratio" was worth a visit. Although you knew that yet from the school, but the renewed confrontation with this "rule" on the exhibition is good. It has been shown the collection from nature through extensive exhibits. Also, the application architecture, photography and technology General, just to name a few will very informative and instructive. It has worth it in my opinion and also my wife, not so much on technology was interested in enthusiastically.

  • The main exhibit was fully closed, and the side exhibits were supposedly just for native German speakers.
  • Nice museum. Small exhibition and not everything is about communications. Nonetheless it's interesting.
  • The permanent exhibition is great. Writing systems, the creation of post service, then telegraph, telephone, radio, tv and finally the Internet. Highlights are a working machine that sorts letters based on the address, and a working analog phone routing machine.
  • It's a nice museum, nothing extraordinary but for an entry fee of only 4,50€ it is a nice thing to do if you are interested in museums.
  • A truly awesome place. A spectacular collection of pretty much everything to do with modern communication. A must-see while visiting Frankfurt.
