  • This is a brilliant museum featuring stamps of different eras.Many historians in the past used to collect coins to document history in books.I think stamps do the same job when you explore it with a keen eye.You can see almost all the stamps from colonial rule to recent years.They have a dedicated collection to Children.It's really fun to visit child stamp section here.There are a wide range of stamps featuring various achievements of Modern India,Exotic animal species,Poets,Cinema legends,Pioneers in Fundamental Research,Lakes,Kings etc.There is also a Souvenir store where you can buy things like Card holders(with a stamp imprinted on it),Pens,Catalogues,mugs etc.Must visit!!
  • National Philatelic Museum is a real gem for museum lovers. It has a great collection from 1947 to 2014 year wise as well as tiny corner for International stamps. It takes at least 2 hrs to see. After 2014,nothing is displayed over there. That made me sad :( It is very well maintained museum. No entry fees and just few steps from Patel Chowk metro station. They have a shop inside if you wanna buy table top or stamp book for reasonable prize. They have some fridge magnets, but that does not look like a stamp.
  • Very good museum by Indian post containing complete postage history... No entry fee.. it gives you a chance to visit the complete life of postal stamps across timeline with the variety and category of postal stamps on different events.... There is a shop also which allows you to have your own personalized valid postage stamp sheet got printed for 300 Inr... Worth visiting once....

The facility. which is housed on the ground floor of a building, underwent a redevelopment in 2011. It now hosts an amphitheater for presentations and discussions, a library and an area where artists can be seen at work, as well as displays of postage stamps and related items. The Museum has displayed number of frames in which exhibits of Post Independence era stamps can impress any Visitor with its charm. The frames have been arranged beautifully in different sections like section for Sheetlets, section for different themes, Section for Stamps from different countries. The Museum organise Philatelic workshops on regular basis with the students of different schools. Children discover many stories that stamps can tell and appreciate how these colorful and attractive stamps are educational yet fun for them. The Museum also has a Souvenir Shop which offers variety of Philatelic products like Stamps, Year Packs, Stamp Albums,Picture postcards, Pictorial cancellation of National Philatelic Museum, and Gift items etc. The museum was designed by Dr. Anand Burdhan of the Delhi Institute of Heritage Research and Management, who is also secretary of the Museum Association of India.[1] It is situated on Sansad Marg (Parliament Street) near Connaught Place, New Delhi, and is opened from 10:00AM to 05:00PM all days in a week for the visitors without any fee. The Museum also figures on the list of HOHO Bus as one of the prominent stops.[2]
  • Was an amazing experience going through the things at display. A must visit place for children. The only problem is that it is not located in a noticeable place so people walking around central delhi may not easily notice it. Definitely a learning experience for generations to come if the government doesn't pull down the shutters.
