Postal Museum Prague

Do you like stamps? Why not visit the exposition in Postal Museum Prague dedicated to them. You will see philatelic gems and rarities from around the world, which will remind you of the fact that stamps can do more than merely reflect the time and country of their origin: many of them are also tiny beautiful pieces of art. Those who like in-depth information can use our library and study room.

Our Prague venue is based in a 17th century baroque building located in the Prague Conservation Area registered on the UNESCO World Heritage list.
