Liechtenstein is famous for its high-quality postage stamps, so a philatelic museum is de rigueur. The exhibits are mostly in pull-out frames, so you an find what interests you, and there's a lot of interesting stuff. There was also a small exhibit of postal artifacts. I wish that there was some kind of basic, introductory exhibit about Liechtenstein stamps and... More

We stopped in Liechtenstein while driving from Innsbruck to Luzerne and found it good experience. Due to the time constraint, we spend only one hour walking along the main street. We visited the postage stamp museum due to interest and because it was free admission. The museum is a small but exhibiting interesting items. The stamps offered for sale were... More

We have visited this museum during our stay in Vaduz. It was free of charge. Quite a good collection of stamps, documents relating to the development of stamps were placed for visitors' viewing. A gift shop including stamps etc. was opened for visitors. For stamp lovers, please do't miss the chance to visit this museum

Very good free museum about postal history in Liechtenstein. Do not miss the free cultural center above the Postage Museum as it hosts great temporary exhibitions.

The museum is quite small but gives an interesting overview of the world of postage stamps. You can see numerous specimens of stamp art and how it evolves from initial draft to finished stamp.

A free museum but with very minimal “history” of stamp or post. Just a few pictures, some old post boxes and some old stamps dated back to 1920s. Only spent 15-20 mins there. Yet, the stamp stickers on the floor in front of the museum are interesting.

The National Museum was closed, and the Liechenstein Center recommended the Postage Stamp Museum. It's free and does have stamps to sell, which is one of the major items which Liechenstein is famous for. My wife and I enjoyed this museum, but can't say that there's lots to see, unless you are a stamp collector, you probably won't spend a... More
