The new core exhibition covers almost 2,000 square meters and is filled with everything that fans of the Museum of Communication love.

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

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.

NOTHING

Is it possible that nothing is not nothing after all? The exhibition NOTHING (10.11.23-21.07.24) goes all out to show the seemingly inane from an unusual point of view. The small things in our everyday lives that are not visible, material or tangible. They seem to appear from nowhere, only to disappear again. This is by no means a conjuring trick. Let us take you on a journey with some wonderfully surprising encounters – a journey into nothingness!
