We stumbled across this as we wandered back towards our hotel. Well worth the visit. Great displays, interactive displays and an anime exhibition is on at the moment. They have a postal service and the shop is small but well worth a look.

Came across it by accident but loved how informative it was about stamps and the postal system. Had a lot to say about anime/ stamps which was interesting.

A excellent place to visit, not just for stamp enthusiastics or little kids, the museum has several rooms with displays that are always changing and not necessarily stramp related such as the wonderful carved egg display. There are interactive displays to keep you occupied whilst...More
