A good stamp museum needs more than just a collection of stamps, and this museum offered nothing extra. The displays were good, but I wanted to know more about the history of the postal system.

It is quite a cheap museum with a decent collection of various stamps and the history of stamps. If you are a stamp collector or want to emphasize the history of snail mail to your children, you can stop here.

Well if you're not that passionate about stamps, I guess this is just a waste of time. It's not much to see but just stamps. Quite a lot of collection.

This small museum is a must visit for philatelist and stamp collectors. The collection include mostly Malaysian stamps from the British colonial era as well as some foreign stamps. There is a gift shop that sells stamps and entrance fee is minimal.

stamps before the opening displayed and no new exhibit after the year of opening. Some amenities need fixing. Good if you are interested in stamps.
