Spend about half an hour to explore the space, the gardens and the shop (great stamps and gifts!) if you are not into philatelist. If you like and collect stamp you should allow a few hours. The collection seems global and vast.

This beautiful, small museum is one of the hidden gems of the city. Amazingly maintained, the hotel is located in a redecorated traditional house with three beautiful patios.

Free entrance and super beautiful inside. Many rooms well decorated and organised and various areas for sitting and relaxing. Definitely worth the visit.

This museum is beautifully laid-out with interesting exhibits and unexpected little gardens. The vault-like room with amazing stamps and letters was particularly interesting and the special exhibit on baseball was a nice surprise. Highly recommended.

You might think, "Do I really want to go to a stamp museum?" but YES YOU DO. This place is absolutely more than stamps. It's a beautiful stunning space. It's free (donation suggested)

Hardly a museum, part of a room at the stamp shop/post office. Lovely stamps for sale. 15 minutes maximum to see everything.

This is a beautiful museum. I wondered who paid for all this, since the entrance is free. Yes, they have stamps! As a kid, I was passionate about stamp collecting, but I can see now that I got over it.

We were shocked that this beautiful museum was free! The museum itself is gorgeous - there are lovely places to sit and there is a beautiful patio/garden area. The exhibits were really interesting and there were several English-language translations. Their stamp collection was really cool...More

Also the only stamp museum. I didn't ever think this was something I would seek out. I noticed the excellent reviews on here and went. It was actually awesome and we spent a lot of time there. They had a room full of stamps in...More
