It is full of memorabilia and displays of postage stamps issued by Liechenstein over the years but I did not learn anything because there were not enough information boards and what there were are in German! What about visitors from overseas? The best display for me was at the start where they had a printing plate and a picture of... More

My wife and I were in Northern Italy for a few days and decided to drive into Vaduz to see Liechtenstein and visit The Stamp Museum. We are both serious stamp collectors. The museum is small and quaint. The admission is free, the staff helpful, bathrooms clean, and lots of Liechtenstein stamps for sale. The are a number of displays... More

We went to Davuz from Chur, Switzerland by train and Post Bus in order to buy one each of the postage stamps in current use from the Post Office to add to my husband's collection but were delighted to find this Post Museum. Unfortunately we could not gain any information about anything as everything attached to the exhibits was only... More

This little museum is amazing. You can see all the stamps issued by the small state. There is a lot of memorabilia on display and you can learn everything about the postage history of Liechtenstein.

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
