Bern's new-look Museum of Communication lets you discover the many means we've used to connect with each other through 2,000m2 of interactive exhibits.

The new-look Museum of Communication in Bern helps you discover the many weird and wonderful means we have used to connect with each other throughout the centuries. From gestures and body language to media, telecommunications and pop culture, it's all brilliantly brought to life over 2,000m2 of interactive exhibits.

Have a go at designing your own postage stamp, sending a message by analogue tube or reenacting a scene from cinema history in a film karaoke session. You can also check out Switzerland's first ever computer, the 3.5-tonne, 80-kilobyte ERMETH.

But perhaps the most interactive element of all is the museum's flesh-and-blood 'communicators'. A quintessential part of the show, these specially trained members of staff are happy to explain everything, from the reasons we communicate to tidbits about the displays.
