The Museum für Kommunikation - Communication Museum presents various changing exhibitions and events of the history of communication. This Museum is particularly suitable for families with children.
The Museum für Kommunikation Berlin (Communication Museum) was first founded in 1872. It was known as the first Postal Museum of the world and like most Berlin's museums has a long history. It was shut during the World War I and II where it received quite a lot of damage from the bombs. After a long reconstruction period, based on modern techniques, the Museum für Kommunikation Berlin (Communication Museum) was finally reopened on March 17th, 2000 as we know it today .
The museum’s exhibition, through tangible exhibits, the origins and the workings of the information society, becomes comprehensible to the audience. You will notice a blue neon writing that reads "We regard the Museum as an incitement to communicate". Most interesting are the three robots in the lobby area of the Museum saying‚ 'KOMM-REIN!' (Come in), 'ALSO-GUT!' (OK) and 'MACH-MIT!" (Join in). They welcome visitors, tell stories of the building and invite them to play games.
There are 17 exhibits set with light and sound in the basement treasure vault. The exhibits are comprise of famous items of the collection as for instance the legendary Blue Mauritius as well as exhibits that have helped write the history of communication. Lastly, there is the computer gallery on the 2nd floor which extends the exhibition into virtual space.
