Norway's postal & philatelic museum. The mail will get through: Which one of us has never rushed to the letter box in the hope of finding a letter or postcard from a friend? When one is waiting for you, it is a real pleasure. Often, not much thought...more

This place is located inside the Maihaugen area, which means you have to buy a ticket for the whole thing to access it. But it was such a fun walk down memory lane! They had all the stuff I remember from my childhood, and more.

An interesting and informative stop if you are in Maihaugen, but not worth making a special trip. It includes train cars that show you how mail was transported and sorted between towns.

This is a great little museum, with a postmaster on hand to answer questions. I only wish we hadn't visited the rest of Maihaugen first. By the time we got to the Post Museum, with a bum knee, I wasn't really up to spending the...More
