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 will now also be introduced to the fascinating world of communication by people made of flesh and blood, by our communicators.
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? The exhibition explores these fundamental questions in a playful manner whilst calling on its visitors to contribute their expert thoughts.
You can take part in a game of film karaoke and re-enact famous scenes, you can breach your opponent’s firewall in a hacking game – you can try something different every time you visit the museum.
