I used to send the postcards to my family and friends that live in indonesia. The postcards, the stamps were lovely and artistic, sometimes cute. Interesting to the stamps,postcard, and postal system, I went to Musee de la poste. It’s located at 34, Boulevard de Vaugirard,15 th arrondissement. It’s two medieval houses.

The reception houses a mail-sorting, a 1913 vintage call box. Temporary exhibits in this room focus on particular aspects of communications, such as photocopying and satellite communications. There are six main rooms devoted to different themes. The pre-industrial room is particularly outstanding containing exhibitions of things such as semaphore, telegraph, and Morse systems. The telephone room contains a delightful collection of phones from different periods. I can learn how the postal system at the Musée de la Poste with the Paris Pass sightseeing card.
