I was not going to go to the stamp museum, but it was raining and we wanted to get out of the rain. The museum is free and while not that big has a lot to look at. There are thousands of stamps that you can look at from a 100 years ago and how they changed until today. They... More

Unfortunately nothing was written in English - if you are a stamp lover it would probably be great as the slide out panels had a full history of stamps.

Great collection of stamps but museum was smaller than I anticipated. It is a free museum so you could drop by if you are in Vaduz. The touristy stuff is all very walkable and near and you cannot miss this place. If you like postage, you could visit this place else it is alright!

It was an interesting thing to look at and the price was right (free), but unless you're VERY into postage, this is a bit of a snore for me. Hundreds of rows of pull-out metal display cases of stamps.

This free museum is small but boost a great collection of stamps and First Day Covers from all over the world. It brought back sweet memory of why I used to collect stamps and First Day Covers during my teenage years. You must bring along your passport and get it stamped (for 3 SFr) as an official visit to one... More

Historical items show development of postal service and are well set out. One wall is devoted to the stamp collection and it is a large collection.

Give this a good look at 2 hours is enough and an interesting visit will be had. Stamps for different countries is an export and this museum has lots of famous stamps from different countries.

What better way to commemorate visiting a postage-stamp sized country than a visit to the postage stamp museum? It's small but what else does it need to be? Nice collection of artifacts and a rich history of postage has been churned out by this small nation. Postage is a functional form of independence as well as a moneymaker for the... More

I'd heard of the museum before visiting do was looking forward to it but in truth there's not much to see. All in a fairly small single room with a divider across it. Part of the room had an exhibition of pictures, some of which were only loosely related to letters. There was also a TV documentary in English about... More
