Hilltop fires, smartphones and cyborgs
More direct access than ever before: besides interactive displays, surprising objects and large-scale video screens, visitors to the Museum of Communication (formerly the Postal Museum) will now also be introduced to the fascinating world of communication by people made of flesh and blood, by our communicators.
This outing is fun regardless of what the weather holds. It is suitable as an indoor activity, and it is of course ideally suited as a bad-weather option.
A stagecoach, microchip implants or an original getaway car used in the robbery of the century? The new core exhibition examines all forms of communication, which has always connected human beings. But why do we communicate? And who do we communicate with? What is required for us to understand each other? The exhibition explores these fundamental questions in a playful manner while calling on its visitors to contribute their expert thoughts.
Numerous newly developed points of adventure await you. You can take part in a game of film karaoke and reenact famous scenes, you can breach your opponent’s firewall in a hacking game or you can have a go at seeing through the data octopus’s game – you can try something different every time you visit the museum. At some point in the 2000 square metres of the exhibition you will surely meet one of our communicators. They will make each visit a personal and individual experience. How? Let us surprise you!
The exhibits are presented in German, French and English.
By the way: The mascot Ratatösk accompanies children through their own world of communication and teaches them fun-filled games.
