Lonely Planet review
Not only posties and philatelists but anyone who enjoys travel, exploration and communication will enjoy this contemporary postal museum. Billed as ‘L’Adresse’ (the Address), the museum offers a fascinating overview of the history of the French postal service, with exhibits spanning several floors. Imaginative temporary exhibitions might be anything from artist-designed letter boxes to wartime postal services or postcards.
Before leaving, don’t miss the shop selling every imaginable French stamp, from Harry Potter designs to romantic red heart-shaped stamps, as well as stamps from overseas French territories including New Caledonia and French Polynesia.
