The Postal Museum is mainly concerned with acquiring knowledge about postal history, postage stamps, transportation means, period postal uniforms, mail and letter boxes, means of mechanisation as well as about telegraph, telephone and a range of other things. The Postal Museum also reflects the atmosphere among the people in the country and the history of the country whose historical and integral part the Post has been and continues to be.
You can find all information about the Postal Museum on its new website at www.postovnimuzeum.cz/en.
The main information includes details about opening hours, expositions, shops, and the Prague-based library of the Postal Museum. You can also find news and notices of future, ongoing and past exhibitions.
The Postal Museum runs two expositions based in Prague and in Vyšší Brod.
The highlights of the Prague-based exposition are collections of Czech, Czechoslovak and world stamp design; some exhibits are displayed in rooms with attractive Biedermeier-style murals painted by Navrátil.
The exposition at the Vyšší Brod venue will show you the world of transportion means, uniforms, telecommunication technology, paintings, cash, mail and letter boxes and other operation tools.
