Museum of Communication in Bern

High altitude fires, smartphones and cyborgs – discover the world of communication in a playful way with our communicators.

The Apple1, chips under the skin or an original getaway vehicle from the heist of the century – the Museum of Communication deals with all forms of communication. An unusual museum experience that has been awarded the prestigious Council of Europe Museums Prize 2019.

Travel comfortably by train to Bern and continue by tram to the "Helvetiaplatz" stop. From there you can reach the museum on foot after about 300 metres.

The Museum

The Museum of Communication is full of things to try out and stories to discover. Why is there a burnt-out mail robbery car? Who makes the funniest video with Film Karaoke? And who is doing gymnastics with the popular robot NAO? In addition to playful stations, surprising objects and large video screens, real people are also here to convey the fascination around the world of communication. They think up new activities and games every day. So it certainly won't be boring here.

In 2019, the Museum of Communication received the coveted Council of Europe Museum Prize.

The unique hosts inside the museum's exhibitions have tips for everyone – from 2-3 year old toddlers, to teenagers, to grandmothers. Give in to temptation and visit!

Suitable for children 3 years of age and over

The Museum of Communication is ideal for children. Here the little ones are allowed to touch things, try them out and solve puzzles. There is a separate tour of the museum as an activity for children between 4 and 8 years old. Ratatösk the squirrel takes the children into his world of communication and shows them amusing games. A tour of discovery for curious girls and boys.

Exhibition "NOTHING" 10.11.2023–21.07.2024

Could it be that nothing is not nothing? The exhibition NOTHING lays everything on the line and presents seemingly trivial things in an unusual show. The small things from our everyday life that are not visible, not materially tangible. The Museum of Communication invites you on a journey with wonderfully surprising encounters – a journey into nothing!
