While the Postal Museum maybe does not sound like the most exciting of the Paris attractions, it will really surprise visitors, presenting the history of the postal service in a lively and engaging way.
Visitors to the museum can explore the massive impact communications technology has had on the world through various innovative exhibits.
The Musee de la Poste is split over two enchanting medieval houses, and highlights in the reception room include a mail-sorting machine and a vintage call box dating back to 1913.
In this room visitors will find charming temporary exhibits which focus on certain aspects of communications like photocopy and satellite communications.
Six main rooms cover different themes, with the pre-industrial room being a particularly intriguing one, containing exhibitions of things like semaphore, telegraph and Morse systems.
There is also a telephone room which contains phones from different periods in time, with eras like the advent of voice technology and the work of Alexander Graham Bell's work.
