  • The Museum is required to attend to the workers of "connections", all people interested in technology, and caring parents to children and curious tourists. Many interactive exhibits. The game of "telegraphists", for example, where you can try to communicate in Morse code, few of the curious. Pneumatic mail model, huge collection of stamps, many older models of phones, Telegraphs, cameras ... Modems and data carriers of different years, ranked by date of release, given to understand how technology has changed over the past decade. Well and the bottom of the orbiter is just amazing!  Very very nice Museum. Interesting, not boring, but informative. To visit without tours took about two hours, but could stay there longer. Recommend!

  • Had company in the weekend days. Without queues! But inside a fairly firm company lovers of this museum. Interesting exposition dedicated to the Americas, brand, interactive exhibits. Worth a go.

  • The exposition is normal, but all the spoil of the housekeeper of the year 1982. Today, one said "nothing should be done there." The lack of a guide, the lack of audio. Strange closed cafes. The food is prepared, the staff there, but close. There is no menu. Wardrobe is closed. Pulled things and clothes all the time. It's a shame. Child 6 years nothing at all. The only interest-air mail and interactive devices. Everything else in the eyes of the child-a pile of junk.

  • Such diversity means respect, I have not seen anywhere else. A lot of things you can touch and see how it works.

  • A wonderful Museum. Were there with friends on the night of the museums. A collection of exhibits or mock-ups of almost all communication in ancient times. The emphasis, however, is still a relatively new means of communication, such as email in its modern form, the Telegraph, telephones. About modern communication like cellular communications and the Internet not so much. Probably because it's hard to visually demonstrate and easier to read about this somewhere on Wikipedia. :)

  • An excellent Museum, you can trace the development of ways to transmit information over long distances.
