Post and Tele Museum – last chance to visit the current museum

The popular Post and Tele Museum on Købmagergade in the city centre will be closing its doors at the end of this year before reopening in a bigger space in the old Post Office building in Østerbro close to Fælledparken and Trianglen sometime in the next year or so (there seem to be no firm dates on this as the new museum will take some time to set up). If you love this place or have never taken your children to the free play area, Inside the Stamp, now is the time to do so. They also have a workshop where you can draw a stamp design and they print it up for you into a sheet of real stamp size stickers.IMG_2964 The shop and the main exhibition have already been closed but there is a special Christmas exhibition, which costs 50kr to visit, and also the popular children’s play area on the third floor will remain open until it closes on 30th December (as will the cafe on the top floor). We have visited this museum countless times and it is one of my son’s favourite places. We have many fond memories of this place and I love how my son’s enjoyment of the play post office area has developed and grown over the last three years. We spend a lot of time in museums and this place has been one of the best for keeping our interest. I regularly recommend it to families looking for something to do on a cold or rainy day. IMG_2966 The museum held a user-led consultation earlier this year to find out what people would like to see in the new place, which at 1000 sq metres bigger than the current location offers more scope for displays. Not confirmed by the museum but I have heard there will be a section about the internet and modern communications, the play centre will be back in some form (hopefully along the same format), there will be a cafe plus other new features. With culture losing out under the new government, I hope the new Post and Tele Museum is able to gain sufficient funding to continue its great work. With over 270,000 annual visitors to the current museum I am sure I am not alone.IMG_2967 IMG_2973A big thank you to the Post and Tele Museum, its staff and curators for three brilliant years of fun for us at Købmagergade and we look forward to the new place – hopefully with old favourites and new discoveries.
