Tehran, May 15, IRNA - The First House of the Iranian Stamp Museum will be opened at Mojtahedis' House in Tabriz, East Azarbaijan province, concurrent with the "Communications Week" and the "Cultural Heritage Week."

Different types of stamps from 1962 until now will be put on display 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 the First House of the Iranian Stamp Museum has been on agenda since last Iranian year (started March 20, 2020).
