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.

Ok- the place is quite run down ... but if it's the history of stamps and postal services in Malaysia you are seeking then the place is worth a trip.. You need about 2 hours max to cover the museum which is already in the centre of the tourist destinations in Malacca.Many rare stamps, post boxes and Mr Postman write... More

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.

Interesting if you like stamps, not much else. There was some history/stories around the stamps, but mostly it just had stamps through the years.

I thought this museum was very sweet - it gave an overview of types of postage and then has an extensive history and display of all the different stamps from the different regions of Malaysia. Would definitely recommend, and the 2 ringgit entry is worth it.

Most of the stamps are not even stamps, they are just posters. There is nothing more boring and worthless than this place in melaka
