This is a fascinating place to visit. The insights into the entire system of postal in this tiny yet prosperous country made me feel very appreciative of the role of a postmen. You can spend hours in this place to appreciate more about history of postal and stamps. A must visit in Vaduz.

Liechtenstein is famed for the humble postage stamp production and having been very amateur philatelists in our youth we were interested to look round this small museum, especially as it is free of charge. It was a fascinating hour finding the stamps produced on different themes such as Christmas and the Olympic Games. We discovered those printed in the years... More

If you love stamps you can get lost here, otherwise is still a fun thing to do if you have time when in Vaduz.

This is not a necessity when visiting Vaduz. Enter the lobby and get a glimpse of what the exhibits hold. For most philatelic non-enthusiasts this will suffice. You might be enticed to pay 8 euros to see the Prince’s treasures, which is an add-on to the general admission, but it is definitely sparse and not worth your money.

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

Spent almost an hour here, free of charge and with interesting old display of stamps which they are known for and also some beautiful and nice stuff.

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!
