The Museum of Communication Berlin is the world’s oldest postal museum. The extensive collection of the museum provides diverse insights into postal history, writing culture, communications technology, and radio and television, including postcard curiosities, a pneumatic tube system, and transatlantic cables from the 19th century.

Treasure Chamber

Discover the Highlights of the Museum

Schatzkammer im Museum

Too valuable for display cases, too sensitive for daylight. In the Treasure Chamber’s hushed, low-light atmosphere, we present 17 of the most valuable, famous or unusual objects from our collection in special displays set in solid columns. The objects themselves are emblematic of progress, art and contemporary history and include, for instance such legends as the Blue Mauritius – the most famous stamp in the world – or the very first telephone invented by Philip Reis or the “cosmos stamp” traveled into space with the cosmonauts.
