Postal Museum 郵政博物館

Anchor point

Introduction

Established in 1965, the exhibits at the Postal Museum document the development of the postal service from the past to the present. An effective postal service depends on international cooperation so on display are logos, post boxes and postman uniforms from around the world. These help us learn more about other countries' postal services.

    History of the postal service and stamp collecting

    2019-06

    This is an impressive museum spread over 5 floors of the building. On display were collections of stamps from around the world, history of the very first postal services in China through to the modern corporate Chunghwa Post and some interactive activities for children. Equipment on display included postal delivery bikes and computer/mail sorting equipment from a bygone era. Entrance fee was a very reasonable NT$10, and your admission ticket is a postcard. You can buy a stamp here and mail it there. If you like technology or infrastructure themed museums, you will probably enjoy this place. Be sure to check out every floor. It starts on the 6th floor and finishes on the 2nd floor.

    They removed all countries postman uniform, in 2019, This includes the most valuable West German postman uniform, Therefore, they are no longer world class postal museum, They also removed all countries postbox, in 2019, in case of you philately, over there is a museum shop, very good, they also sold beautiful tape for use on postcard, I am an old man, age over 65, admission fee free, 2019年, 他們移除了世界各國郵差的制服展覽品, 他們也移除了世界各國郵筒展覽品, 原本正確的事情不能永續經營, 真是可惜,

    Immerse yourself in the world of stamps

    2019-01

    If you have any interest in stamps, this is a great way spend a few hours. Most exhibits are in Chinese, but levels 2 and 3 are use English. Apart from stamps, you will see bicycles and motorcycles use by postmen. There's a children's section with interactive exhibits. The Museum hosts special exhibitions which will interest philatelists -- that is, stamp collectors.Entry is inexpensive - $10 for adults, gratis for children and those over 65, including foreign visitors. Taiwan has an excellent postal service, it's good to see the ins and outs of the service.
