At Post & Tele Museum, discover how people communicated in the days before computers and smart phones. The museum features a huge collection of Danish stamps issued between 1851 and 1998, old phones, telegraphs, computers, and more modern communication devices. Send a message by telegraph, or hold one of the first models of mobile phones which weighed 11.5 kg (25.5 lbs). The permanent exhibit is divided into three sections: the king's post office, the age of invention, and the information society. Go on a 400-year historic tour and listen to H.C. Andersen speaking about letters. A cafe with a view at the roof serves Danish lunch.
