Communication Museum

The Reich Post Office designed and built by Carl Schwatlo from 1872 to 1874 is today the home of the Communication Museum (Museum für Kommunikation). Its permanent exhibition looks at the postal system, telecommunications, and information technology in the past, present, and future. Visitors are greeted in the lobby by three robots, can explore interactive, multimedia exhibits, and see treasures like the first telephone or the rare stamp “Blue Penny” in a special room.
