Etihad Museum hosts first exhibition
Updated on 29 January 2017

Opened by Dubai Culture and Arts Authority (Dubai Culture), Etihad Museum's first exhibition is being held under the title ‘Emirates to the World: Postal History from 1909 to Unification.’ The exhibition tells the story of the Emirate’s postal services from their earliest days through to the UAE unification in 1971, through stamps, letters, artworks and archives found in the extraordinary private collection of Abdulla Khoory, President of Emirates Philatelic Association.

Khoory’s collection has been augmented with objects and images supplied by Emirates Post and a number of other historical archives. The exhibition is accompanied by workshops for adults and children who are interested in postal history, letter writing, and the popular subject of philately, stamp collecting.
