On February 16, 100 projects of the seventh batch of China’s 20th century architectural heritage projects were released, and the architectural building where Tianjin Postal Museum is located, the building of the former Tianjin Post Office of Post of Qing, was on the list.
Since the first batch of China's 20th century architectural heritage projects was released in 2016, altogether seven batches totaling 697 architectural heritage projects have been presented to the public. Among the 100 projects released this time, nine are architectural buildings in Tianjin.
Tianjin Postal Museum was built on the site of the former Tianjin Post Office of Post of Qing. Initially completed in 1884, the building is the only existing post office premises built in the Qing dynasty, and has therefore witnessed the start of the postal service in China. Since its establishment, the museum has constantly enriched its collections, and played a positive role in reinforcing the corporate culture of China Post, strengthening cooperation and exchanges, and facilitating business development.
In recent years, the museum has been repeatedly reconstructed and expanded. By creating unique scenarios, it has deeply integrated cultural relics with tourism and leisure culture to meet tourists’ cultural and tourism needs and enhance customer experience, and has therefore become one of the Instagrammable cultural spots in Tianjin.
