In 1930 PTT museum was moved to the ground floor of the building designed by the architect Momir Korunović, in the Majke Jevrosime street number 13.

During 2011, exhibition space, library and museum depots were reconstructed. The reconstruction was carried out in accordance with the latest museological standards.
