During school holidays the Museum of Post and Telecommunications is organising children’s holiday workshops. Children there create pot horns, stamps, and post caps, they send each other messages with a Morse telegraph, and, for a short while, become real post carriers at the children’s post office. Prior reservations are not necessary.

CHILDREN’S GUIDEBOOK TRARA, TRARA, POŠTO PELJA (Trara, trara, the post is here)!

Children, parents, grandparents can all enjoy interactive audio stations with stamps and the children’s guide Trara, trara the post is here! with its fun exercises which present history to our youngest and older explorers in a fun and playful manner. We will present you a time when we eagerly awaited our mail carriers to bring us fresh news. A time when mobile phones were not part of our everyday lives.

Where is the post horn? is an European project intended for upgrading the overall image of  Museum of Post and Telecommunications and specially making it more appealing for young children. The project was co-financed by the Republic of Slovenia and European Social fund. It was carried out by students from University of Ljubljana. The game takes you on a journey through time, introducing different eras of postal service along the way. Imagine travelling to Ancient Greece, visiting the Middle Ages, fighting for your life underwater, going inside the telephone and much more. Different characters that you meet along the way help you to find the missing pieces of the post horn. In order to finish the game, the child must find answers to different riddles by exploring the museum and searching for hidden clues. We managed to make the museum visit more interesting for children and increase their focus when looking at the exhibition.

PRICE: free
