  • Great wee place to spend a few hours how communications have advanced over the years very interesting
  • A fascinating place, deceptively bigger inside than its façade suggests, free entry, cafe, very friendly and knowledgeable guides (Dorothy and Tom) a must see if your on the area, open Saturday and Wednesday.
  • Great info about old and new communications, managed to see the World War 1 and 2 exhibition while it was showcased.
  • deceptively small building with very comprehensive collection of all kinds of technical wonders. If you like old technology and if you want to see probably one of the best museums of its kind, it's worth the diversion to burntisland.
