Since 1987, the Museum of Communication has been located in a very beautiful 1887 building near the opera house. It deals with the history of postal operations from the 16th Century onwards, especially in Hamburg. The first collection of this kind was presented here in 1937. One of the main attractions is the historic post office counter from 1900. The permanent exhibition provides you with information and documents on telecommunication, maritime radio and telegraphy, and illustrates the interesting ways in which mail is transported by ship, rail and air. Additional exhibitions on specific areas of interest are also part of the programme, as are educational offers and guided tours. Young visitors might like the idea of celebrating their birthday party here at the museum. There is no admission fee.
