A cup of coffee and the morning paper

Post Museum, Tampere

  • 28.5.2021–28.8.2022

A cup of coffee and the morning paper explores the newspapers journey to the breakfast table.


A cup of coffee and the morning paper is an exhibition about the importance of the morning paper, the digital revolution of the newspaper and the past and present means of newspaper delivery. The exhibition describes the newspapers journey from the printing works to the letterbox and Finnish peoples kitchen table, followed by what happens to it after its been read.

People in Finland have the unique opportunity to have their paper delivered to their homes in the early hours of the morning, hot off the press, seven days a week. In most countries, people buy their newspaper at the newsagents.

The exhibition focuses on the printed newspaper. Early-morning deliverers play an important yet almost invisible role. Newspapers are delivered whatever the weather, all year round. Many people have their first job in early-morning deliveries. Many deliverers are immigrants. Early-morning deliveries are carried out by Posti as well as several other companies.

Digitisation is drastically changing the way we use media. The exhibition highlights the change in the role of the printed newspaper, and it also invites visitors to reflect on their own relationship with the newspaper, both printed and digital.

While youre at the exhibition, you can sit at a breakfast table with the days newspaper and a character from the year of your choice. You can also experience the early-morning deliverers round on Postis electric scooter, answer the delivery clerks phone, get inspired by ideas for recycling newspapers and immerse yourself in Helsingin Sanomat from 1889–2019. Newspapers will also be very prominent in the events we organise.
