The only museum of its kind in Sweden!
Postmuseum is considered one of the finest postal museums in the
world with unique postal history and philatelic collections.
Centrally located in Gamla stan (the Old Town in Stockholm) near
the underground station, the museum is housed in the oldest building
in the Swedish postal organisation, dating back to the 17th century.
Postmuseum occupies an entire block. It was purchased by the Post
Office in 1720, and until 1869 housed Stockholm's only post office.
The museum was opened in 1906. At that time it was limited to a
few rooms, but today it occupies the entire building.
