Not much to see but ok

The place alone is maybe not worth a visit. But it is only a 300 meter walk from the Metropol or the Royal City Hotel on the way to the old town. Entry is free and it does not... read more

This museum is great. It's air-conditioned, its interesting and its FREE. The lady working there was very nice and we were the only visitors in there. All the signs are in English as well as Thai. The only reason I didn't give five stars is that I wished there was more of it! Very nice place, well done Thailand Post.

I am a long time stamp collector - so when I saw this place - I thought it might be interesting. However I was wrong. It does not justify to be called a museum. Apart from a few old postal service machines, there is nothing to see and nothing philatelic or about stamp collecting. It is a complete waste of... More

More for the person with an interest in mail history. Small building near the main post office with a collection of the old machines used to sort and direct mail.
