This free museum is located next to Gedung Sate and Kantor Pos Indonesia Pusat, but the entrance is not clearly marked - as we have to get guided by the security to the correct entrance after we almost entered a random office… The museum has great collection of postal stamps from all around the world and many historical pieces related...

No guide, dark lightning, and no interactive information. Actually, the curatory function is quite good for Museum Pos.

There was a canceled copy of the first stamp issued by Indonesia. There were stamps from around the world and you could get close to examine even rare stamps. This is... More

This place is a bit creepy but loaded with stamps from different times and countries. It is near other important places as well such as the Taman Lansia, Youghut Cisangkuy, Pasar Cisangkuy, Gedung Sate and others so it's worth a visit along with these other places.

don't imagine this place as good as museum in Europe. there still are somethings to fix. they need to make more efforts to attract more visitors, they need to add more stamps collections and brochures...

Free entry and no crowd. Stamps collection was extensive including stamps from other countries. Very large room with other stamp related items (e.g. post box, envelope sorting and postal uniforms) besides stamps. However the place is quite creepy, it's not recommended if you're female and visit this place alone when it's no crowd..

While most people might not find the exhibits on the Indonesian post office going back to Dutch times that interesting, a stamp lover would be IMPRESSED by the massive and no doubt extremely valuable collection of stamps from around the world that is well organized on giant pull outable plates by country. The museum is also in a building that's... More
