The variety of different media under the microscope
A box full of original objects worthy of investigation, leading the way into the labyrinth of the exhibition. Here, the aim is to trace the various types of media communication, objects and their history, to put them under the microscope and find out what communication and media are all about.
ON THE TRAIL OF THE LETTER
Voyage of discovery through the stages of the letter postal service
