“Dont go”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2014

Most of the stamps are not even stamps, they are just posters. There is nothing more boring and worthless than this place in melaka

“Well maintained museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

Went there because my in law is stamp collector. The staff told us that this is the 1st museum in Malaysia. Entrance fees for adult RM2/person and children RM1/person. Can see the museum is quite old already but still maintained well. A bit disappointed is most of stamp is photocopy version.
If u plan to buy some stamp for collection, there's a shop located next to counter selling it.

“Older stamps look Normal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

Actually in collections it is like that.Older ones look simple.What matters is that there is a collection and we can see the stamps.Also note there is a selling counter of new stamps.The entrance fee is nominal.This Place is on the route to St Paul`s Hill.

“A Stamp Museum that stamped its mark on me !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

A stamp collector evinces not merely interest but demonstrates knowledge -in the art of locating, and intelligent classification.With this are widened areas of global interest while it also enhances geographical and historical knowledge . Being a teacher at all three levels of education; primary,secondary and and tertiary levels of education I think this is one more way of teaching the value of research through such projects and in increasing international exposure and knowledge.
The Museum is small , but on the Jalan and so it occupies a good place as it is also close to the wonderful Islamic World Museum . Though not very big, the display and presentation is good; the Staff is very courteous and smiling; and the vendor was very helpful in helping to show some unique old stamps like the Black Penny; old postal covers including those before and after Singapore was separated from Malayasia. The entrance fee is very low RM1 only ! This is a welcome sign of how the authorities encourage visitors . A visit to this Museum is time well spent .
