22.02.2016 - Dutch Museum for Communication will close for one year

With entrance from leap day 2016, the Dutch Museum for Communication in The Hague will be closed for at least one year. The reopening is scheduled for spring 2017.
The museum is the continuation of the ‘Postmuseum’ that was founded in 1929, then company museum of the State-owned Dutch postal administration (PTT). Since World War II, the museum can be found in the Zeestraat in The Hague, in what once used to be the ‘Royal Bazar’.
The museum currently shows far more than just the history of post and telecommunications in the Netherlands. It shows the influence of communication on people and society. This is done by stimulating presentations and an inspiring collection.
That the museum will be closed for such a long time has to do with a major renovation that will last over a year. At present, the museum says farewell to the old concept with a festive program. It's the last chance for collectors and anyone interested to visit the museum in its old form.
