After undergoing complete redevelopment, the Musée de La Poste has reopened to the public at its historic address at the foot of the ** Montparnasse Tower** in the 15th arrondissement of Paris, just a short walk from the shops on the Rue de Rennes and the Saint-Germain-des-Prés district. Families, grandparents and grandchildren, stamp collectors and those with inquiring minds… are once again welcome to browse the permanent collections and exhibitions displayed over three floors and centred around a glass column, measuring 20 meters high and 7 meters wide, like an immense skylight at the heart of the museum.

A modern and interactive experience

The museum’s collections consist of more than one million philatelic items, more than 200,000 images, 37,000 works and objects illustrating the history and the trades of La Poste from the Middle Ages to the present day, 30,000 printed works and 800 journal titles, as well as a collection of mail art and contemporary art presented in a fully modernised and completely interactive display. These exceptional pieces tell the story of French postal history.
The Musée de La Poste also includes an auditorium, a shop, studio spaces and a programme of temporary exhibitions that are frequently updated to please visitors of all ages.
