First House of Iran Stamp Museum to open in Tabriz

TEHRAN.(Iranart) –The First House of Iran Stamp Museum will open at Mujtahedis’ House in Tabriz, East Azarbaijan Province, concurrent with the Communications Week and the Cultural Heritage Week.

Iran Post declared that museum will be inaugurated in Tabriz in the presence of Managing Director of the Iran Post Ramezan-Ali Sobhanifar, Director of the Post and Communications Museum Hassan Amidi as well as provincial officials on May 20, IRNA wrote. 

Different types of stamps since 1962 will be showcased in 200 stamp boards.

Considering the importance of preserving historical identity and postal symbols and in line with the emphasis made by Minister of Communications and Information Technology Mohammad-Javad Azari Jahromi, the establishment of this museum has been on agenda since last Iranian year (ended March 20, 2021).

To this end, the first international Post-Museum-School was inaugurated in Rasht, Gilan Province, in February 2021, and the second center will be opened in Delgan County in Sistan and Baluchestan Province in near future.

Yazd Post Museum was also inaugurated on March 10, 2021 and welcomes museum lovers.

During his last visit to Tabriz, Amidi, who is also the director-general of public relations and administrative affairs of the Islamic Republic of Iran Post, and provincial authorities had agreed to set up the First House of Iran Stamp Museum at the Mujtahedis’ House.

The Mujtahedis’ House, nationally registered in March 2003, has its last owner's name on it. The house dates back to 200 years ago.

The historical city of Tabriz has been named ‘The City of Firsts’ in Iran because it has been the city of first educational center, first publication, first newspaper, first Islamic encyclopedia, first kindergarten, first school, first public library, first cinema, first carpet collage and so on.

May 17 is World Communications and Public Relations Day and the beginning of Communications Week, and May 28 is International Museum Day and the beginning of Cultural Heritage Week.
