“Nice Post Office and Telegraph Museum - Great Stamp Collections”
Reviewed 23 October 2011

The Central Post Office on Plaza de Armas contains a very nice, free, post office museum (Museo Postal y Telegrafico). It is worth seeing, if only for the somewhat ornate architecture and wrought-iron railings and ceiling. It has very nice displays of post office and telegraph equipment throughout the history of Chile. I found particularly interesting the numerous pull-out, poster-size file drawers containing stamps from a great many countries.

It is definitely worth 15 or 20 minutes when visiting the Plaza de Armas. I enjoyed it, even though I don't speak Spanish.

“If you're already at Plaza de Armas”
Reviewed 10 September 2010

It's worth popping in for a look at the beautiful lobby. In addition, there is a small, unmanned Postal Museum off the right side (free). If you like old technology or antique machines there are some nice examples you shouldn't miss.
