Postal Stamp Museum Reviews & Ratings
Magyar Posta holds an enormous collection of early stamps issues from countries all over the world. There is a small chamber showing Hungarian stamps with special printing techniques under magnifiers and UV light. They provide laminated info sheet in various languages that are very helpful. Some postal-related interesting exhibits in the center of the room. This is only a museum for the stamps. Postal services and history exhibits are in the Postal Museum.
I'm a philstelist and have visited stamp museums in many cities.This is the best so far. The central display is on space exploration, and you are given an information sheet on where to find the rarest stamps in the extensive walls of sliding panels. A secret dark room explains details of stamp production with a magnifier. There is also a 20 frame exhibit on the earliest Hungarian stamps. Worth a visit.
Pretty detailed stamp museum.
An interesting experience. Literally tens of thousands of stamps from all over the world and different periods of time. However, most details are in Hungarian language and you have to figure out for yourself details. If you want to see all of it you will need days.
nice stamp collections to visit for philately
