Postal Museum’s services for adult groups
The Postal Museum’s guided tours familiarize visitors with the museum’s permanent exhibition, Messengers, or a changing exhibition on a specific theme. The Messengers exhibition offers information and great experiences. The exhibition tells human-sized stories about the history of message conveyance, not forgetting recent history and the present day. At the core are the meaning of the message, the development of postal transport and the changes that have occurred in postal work over time.
Guided tours of the Postal Museum are an excellent way for an association or a group of colleagues or friends to spend a recreational moment!
