PTT Museum is open for all ages this Saturday-Children’s Postal hour for young ones

The doors of the PTT Museum will be open like every first Saturday in the month, on the 1st of August, for all people of Belgrade and their guests between 11 and 19 h.
From 12 to 13 h there will be a children’s workshop Children’s Postal hour, intended for preschool and lower school children, from three to ten years old.
Entrance to all programs of the PTT Museum is free.

Children will take a peek into the treasury of the postal wealth and uncover artefacts from the history of the post, telegraph and telephone, during a short walk through the PTT museum, with adjusted guided tours for children aged three to ten years. They will be introduced to real postal coach, wagon train model for the transfer of letters, phones with handles and dials.
Within the assignment “Write and send a letter to a loved one”, children will write and paint about the chosen topic, and then with the help of their parents and curator, they will address the letter, put a stamp on it and throw it in a real mailbox.
Our youngest visitors will be able to take photos and receive original postcards carrying the stamps with their photos, and in a mini post office they can see seals, phones, sorbents for paper, scales for measuring letters and writing kits.
“Children’s Postal hour” will be finished with farewell memory gifts.
Adults can see the current exhibition in the PTT Museum “175 years of Serbian Post”, which shows relevant events in the development of our postal, telegraphic and telephone traffic and people who gave significant contribution to the development of Serbian Post, as well as the permanent exhibition "Meeting point”.
