This museum is a homage to Leichenstein's reputation as a top stamp producer. It is one of a kind, though unfortunately all displays are explained only in German. IF one is interested in stamps, this is a must visit.

Liechtenstein has a reputation for its stamps, so it seemed fitting that they have a museum dedicated to the humble postage stamp and it made for a fun and interesting visit. The museum is small and at first blush, I zipped around the loop and was done. But then I realized that I could pull out the exhibits from the... More

While neither of us have a real interest in stamps we found this small museum a good place to visit. It was well laid out and very easy to get around. It covered the history of Liechtenstein's stamps over the last 100 years. It also covered the history of stamps by themes I imagine a real enthusiast would be in... More

I have a fascination with obscure museums and I make sure I visit them all over the world. This museum is, however, very interesting and while it is small has enough stamps to satisfy the inner philatelist. It is worth a visit if you find yourself in Liechtenstein's capital.

No explanations in English except a short film from Austria about stamp making... Not sure why Liechtenstein's stamps are so expensive! Commerative stamps and packages are sold everywhere. Why so many to do with the Chinese zodiac is also confusing... But with everything else in Liechtenstein, can't afford to buy anything!

This Museum is somewhat rather smaller than most i have been to, but is still worth visiting since the cost is FREE OF CHARGE! They have a great display of old stamps and the history behind production, along with neat relics used to transport mail back in the day.

If you are about stamps - this museum is definitely for you. If you aren't, but you are in Vaduz, have some time you can visit this free museum and learn about history if this place through it's stamps.

Liechtenstein is famous for its high-quality postage stamps, so a philatelic museum is de rigueur. The exhibits are mostly in pull-out frames, so you an find what interests you, and there's a lot of interesting stuff. There was also a small exhibit of postal artifacts. I wish that there was some kind of basic, introductory exhibit about Liechtenstein stamps and... More
