Welcome to ENIGMA - Museum of Communication. A modern museum that makes history contemporary with exhibitions, children's area and workshop.
At ENIGMA you can explore two different exhibition areas that depict the history of Danish communication and media from the establishment of the postal service in 1624, through mass communication in sounds and images and to the digital realities of our time. Discover the great ideas of communication history that became the incredible inventions that have brought people together and made the world both a bigger and a smaller place at the same time. Learn about eavesdropping, surveillance and false truths and learn how communication technologies threaten us as a society and as individuals – both in the past and now.
At ENIGMA’s children’s area we travel into cyberspace and experience our digital world in a physical form. It all takes place as in the days before the internet and iPads. You can slide, crawl, turn, lift and touch phones and play postman. Send an emoji around the world, write a letter on a typewriter and make your very own stamp.
The video game is the most successful cultural product of our time and in ENIGMA’s arcade you will meet the arcade heroes of the 80s and all the creatures that inhabit our games – in front of and inside the screens. Here you may explore our historical exhibition of videogames or play them yourselves in our very own video arcade.
ENIGMA has 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. You can read, listen, play, learn, try and understand. And you will definitely have learned something new when you go back home. Past, present and future under one roof.
