Very good free museum worth visiting

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

When in Vaduz, the Postage stamp museum is a must see place to visit. They have an amazing collection of historical items and just an incredible collection of stamps and stamp memorabilia from the past.

I guess if you're into that type of thing ok, but nothing else to see. Although its free so you can pop in and out as your interest level accounts for.

If you are visiting Vaduz, you might as well stop in at this museum. It's free, conveniently located on the main street, sort of in the middle. We enjoyed the illustrations of classic autos that had been used for stamps in the past. It's small so shouldn't take you long. By the way we parked in a garage right off... More
