You have got to come here for the buffet alone. The history of the Swedish Post Service, excellent exhibits, fabulous curation and stamp collection is second to the excellent food and friendly service on offer. You get a Michelin-standard two-course meal for £10-12 at lunch time. What's not to love?

I always try to find Post Museums, and this one, fortunately is very centric, right in Gamla Stan. It is the oldest post office in Stockholm (1760) and it has been also a museum since 1906. There is all the history of comunication very well arranged , with a fantastic collection of stamps, several old letters diplayed with incredibly beautiful... More

Excellent little museum. The museum really does a terrific job giving you an intro to stamps. Swedish and English signs. Cute gift shop.

I've been so many times in this Museum. Staff are really nice and lot of different items could be viewed. Do not miss lunch in their restaurant, it is also nice. They have several good meeting rooms. Location is perfect, Old city, few steps from Gamla Stan subway station. On the opposite side of the street, very good Victory hotel... More

This is a good museum that traces the history of communication especially delivery of the mail. It is interesting and has just the right amount of information to read in English. The second floor has several interactive exhibits that will especially be enjoyed by kids. If you like stamps, there are lots of these too, both to view and purchase.... More

That a concept of the postal system can be converted to a museum for all to experience is something that needs to be seen to be believed..... Complete models and real life exhibits of the way the postal system has evolved is quite elaborately depicted in the museum. Interesting anectodes are spaced out within the 3 floors to experience. Hands... More

A larger museum than expected that represents good value for money for Stockholm. It starts off with a history of the post office, including vehicles from the time, and moves on to current communications and a beautiful stamp collection. Even in summer the museum wasn't too busy, meaning that adults could try the hands-on activities too. Kids' workshops (in the... More

Nice museum about the Swedish post service from the earliest messages to modern days. A lot to do for children 5-10 years-old, but also adults can enjoy the historical items and huge stamp collection.

This was a fascinating find in Stockholm's Gamla Stan area. An informative and well-presented exhibition on the ground floor (all translated into English) tells the history of Sweden's postal service. Spacious and reasonably priced cafe with salad bar on the first floor. Shop and lockers on the ground floor. There was no entry fee.

Thank JZHendry

Staying in Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen

Neighborhood Profile
Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen
Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting: take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest) alleys, which will make you feel like you’ve travelled back in time. This neighborhood offers a great combination of historical buildings and traditional Swedish restaurants.
