ENIGMA - Museum of Communication

Welcome to ENIGMA - Museum of Communication. At ENIGMA we store Denmark's national collections within post and telecommunications, and we hold Denmark's largest stamp collection as well as the country's most important specialist library within its field.

We have something very special in store for all of you. Something for the curious, the childish, the serious, the playful, the insightful and for those out of the loop. Something for those who learn best through experiencing, touching and trying out. And something for those who want to grapple with the existential and social issues we face as modern human beings – connected globally by cables, wires, radio waves and other means of communication.

Our four new exhibition- and activity areas will take you through the great inventions and some of the ingenious tweaks and hacks of modern communications and media history - from the establishment of the Danish postal service in 1624 to the use of SpaceX’s Starlink satellites to provide internet to Ukrainians in the ongoing war. Past, present and future under one roof.

ENIGMA is an obvious starting point for a day in Østerbro with everything the heart can desire nearby: playgrounds, the park, cafes, burger bars, restaurants and shopping.

ENIGMA is located in the middle of wonderful Østerbro in Copenhagen, 20 meters from Trianglen Metro Station, with Fælledparken as a backyard, the cozy Brumleby as a neighbor, and a quick walk from the lakes at Sortedams Dosseringen.
