Looks at all aspects of communication from the invention of writing to the modern internet. Huge numbers of exhibits. Also had an interesting exhibition on advertising, and also a cool exhibition on letters in a bottle.

Interesting place for techies. Most text in German, with it being in Germany, I wasn't surprised. Lots to see. Depending on the exhibition on, you will enjoy an hour or two here.

Backpacks have to be placed in lockers, which is not unusual. There is no charge for this. I started the visit by having a snack - coffee and cake - in the cafe. Prices were average and service was excellent. The museum itself is worth...More
