  • Was there in the 80's.Was great
  • Nice, especially for kids. Much to discover.
  • This museum, in the same building as the train museum, traces the history of the postal and telephone systems in Bavaria. It contains some nice old postal trucks, weird little BMW scooters, and cancellation stamps from every era - including Nazi - and is interesting to see. There is also a working Lamson tube system with three stations and clear tubes so you can see the message capsules shooting around and send your own. The telephone side is an amazing collection of many old instruments in beautiful shape and well displayed. It also contains switchboards, splicing examples from every era, and an equally impressive array of telegraph and Telex instruments - stuff I had only ever seen in books and never in the US. Probably the most impressive are 3 complete, intact, and working central offices - two step-by-step (a 1920's model and a 1960's model) as well as a German magnet based system I had not seen before. They are all connected to phones and you can sit there and trace the calls as they are made, hear the progress tones and the clackity clak of the steppers slamming around. A lot of fun if you like this stuff. The only major drawback is all captions and exhibits are only in German and no recorded tour offered (unlike the train side which offers several languages). Still, for ́4 Euro it's a nice way to spend a few hours. Lots of buttons to press and things to see - kids love it.
  • Beautiful and interesting exhibition to be touched. For children from about age 5 to recommend... We discover new things every time.
