People looking for quirky things to do in Paris could opt for a visit to the fun, engaging and overall brilliant Postal Museum.
The museum is tasked with revealing the history of communication over the years, from pre-industrial methods to the post service, which it does with aplomb.
The Musee de La Poste is divided into two delightful medieval houses. In the reception room visitors will find a mail-sorting machine and a 1913 vintage call box, as well as a temporary exhibit focusing on specific aspects of communications like photocopying and satellite communications.
Furthermore, the museum shows off six main rooms which are devoted to different themes, including a pre-industrial room, which contains exhibitions of things like semaphore, telegraph and Morse systems.
The telephone room is always a hit with visitors thanks to its collection of phones from different periods.
Guests are invited to learn about the development of design aesthetic, the dawn of voice technology and the work of famous inventor Alexander Graham Bell.
