“Well Worth a Visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 November 2013

Not just for stamp-lovers, this small museum is actually for anyone interested in history. Beautiful building and courtyard, and great displays, including original letters of Frida Kahlo.

“What a Delight!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 November 2013

We walked by this museum several times (near our B and B) without realizing what a treasure it is, even if one is not ab stamp collector. The displays were nicely arranged, the major theme (baseball stamps from around the world) was a bonus for me, as I am a big baseball fan. But other non-baseball displays were also interesting, especially a children's book explaining how the postal service works displayed in an outdoor alcove.

“Wonderful focused small museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 November 2013

Admittedly, I used to collect stamps. This small museum of stamps is free and has themed exhibitions. While I was there I saw baseball themed stamps from US, Cuba, North Korea.
There was also a display of a kid's book by students of printmaker Artemio Rodriguez.
The space is so lovely that newlyweds come to get bridal photos in the interior courtyard.

“Pleasant for a hour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2013

This cute inexpensive museum, donation only is charged, did entertain me and my 13 year old for an hour. The first room has stamps from around the world, on several walls of maps, it has a baseball stamp display, also a vault with lots of other stamps new and old. Worth a stop

“One of my favorite spots in OAX”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2013

This small museum is unfortunately often overlooked. This is a shame because it is located right to some of the most popular spots in the city. Located right around the corner from Santa Domingo Church and directly across the street from the Botanica. Absolutely beautiful archecture. Friendly and easy going staff. Entrance fee is by donation and there is a small gift shop. Even if you are not into stamps, stop by just to see the building. You will not regret it. Photographers will love this spot with amazing natural interior light.
