Museum of Communication

The Museum of Communication unites the past, present and future under one roof. The history and development of communication and its technologies can be experienced on the museum’s three levels. And it’s all yours to touch, try out and play with!

An exhibition of the "new" Museum of Communication

The new core exhibition covers almost 2,000 square meters and is filled with everything that fans of the Museum of Communication love. In addition to interactive stations, unusual objects and giant video screens, real live people also share fascinating facts and insights about communication. With its new design, the museum is keeping pace with the times and was awarded the prestigious Council of Europe Museum Prize in 2019.

The exhibition is divided into themed zones devoted to different aspects of communication. Numerous interactive and regularly rotating stations enable visitors of all ages to experience the educational content at their own level. No matter which generation you belong to, you’ll be able to immerse yourself in the constantly changing and ephemeral world of communication.

Learning with Fun and Games

Get to know communication in all its forms and facets in a playful way

Whether it’s creating your own video messages, recognizing different devices by their sounds, taking selfies and interpreting photographs, preventing a hacker’s attack, playing interactive games, designing and printing postage stamps, conducting an interview with a virtual person, or participating in film karaoke, you’ll encounter communication in all its different facets in the core exhibition.

Fascinating knowledge is transfered via many different channels, enabling even regular visitors to gain new perspectives of the museum’s exhibits. If you want to learn even more about a specific area, you can spend longer at a station, read and think about the topic on your own, and define a personal focal point for yourself. You may even want to visit the exhibition several times.
