It is a museum now

Yes, it was a post office long time ago but it is a museum now. Do walk in and have a look when you are in Wan Chai.

It is quite small, and now serves as an environmental/ecological discovery center for children, but some of the original equipment and furnishings remain, and there are a lot of old photographs. Stop in if you're in the neighborhood. Free.
