The Museum for Communication in Berlin explores the history of all things that have to do with communication. It's in a neo-baroque building with modern neon blue lights. When you walk into the museum, one of the first things you will see is robots in the atrium. The museum was originally started as a postal museum in 1872 and has been in its current location since 1898. On display as part of the permanent exhibition are tools of the written word, including wax seals, postcards, and stamps. There are also items representing the spoken and visual word, such as telephones, radios, and film, and items representing virtual communication, like telegraphs and computers.
There is a big focus on changing approaches to signs, codes, and media, and the effects they have on public and private life. The museum has an interactive approach that makes things interesting for kids as well as adults. The Museum for Communication is also regarded as the oldest postal museum in the world.
The Museum for Communication is located at Leipziger Straße 16.
