Thailand Post is taking visitors on a virtual tour of 80 years of its history through its “Bang Rak Grand postal building” exhibition.

Held under the concept of “Klang Nitat Post Office” (Post office in the sense of exhibition), the virtual display invites the public to experience the “history and atmosphere” of the Grand Postal Building, where one of the largest collections of Thai art is shown, from the basement up to the rooftop, with unique highlights on each floor, including the “excellent sculpture” of Silpa Bhirasri, father of contemporary Thai art, and works by his students.

The Siam Post exhibition corner features a gallery of important events, a mini theatre built since the beginning of the Central Post Office, and the Lord Garuda sculpture, which grandly adorns the top of the building.

Visit the 24-hour website (now only available in Thai language) on any type of online device and be treated to 360-degree views of virtual locations and 3D animation with information that cannot be found anywhere else.

There is also a live broadcast of the tour by honorary guide “Warrior Munmanus”, a collage artist who is passionate about reinterpreting history through art, as well as fun activities. You can win prizes by answering questions today (August 27) at 8 pm on the Thailand Post and Thai Stamp museum Facebook pages.
