An opportunity to explore the history of the postal service in Indonesia. The was everything from post office boxes to postal scales, typewriters to history lessons and much more. There was a canceled copy of the first stamp issued by Indonesia. There were stamps from around the world and you could get close to examine even rare stamps. This is... More

This place is a bit creepy but loaded with stamps from different times and countries. It is near other important places as well such as the Taman Lansia, Youghut Cisangkuy, Pasar Cisangkuy, Gedung Sate and others so it's worth a visit along with these other places.

Free entry and no crowd. Stamps collection was extensive including stamps from other countries. Very large room with other stamp related items (e.g. post box, envelope sorting and postal uniforms) besides stamps. However the place is quite creepy, it's not recommended if you're female and visit this place alone when it's no crowd..

While most people might not find the exhibits on the Indonesian post office going back to Dutch times that interesting, a stamp lover would be IMPRESSED by the massive and no doubt extremely valuable collection of stamps from around the world that is well organized on giant pull outable plates by country. The museum is also in a building that's... More

With more than 500 plates of stamp exhibits from various countries and almost all the historical Indonesian stamps, this museum is a philatelist's delight. And, the best of all, it is for FREE. For the general visitor, there are murals, historical post boxes and postmen uniforms over time, to give us a rich sense of Indonesia's history, as seen through... More
