You can find many things about Indonesia postal history here. It's easy to go to this location, near Gedung Sate (Bandung Government Building). You can see all old typewriters, stamps from at the beginning and stamps from all over the world. Sure, it is valuable for our knowledge and something you did not see before about postal in Indonesia.

This free museum is located next to Gedung Sate and Kantor Pos Indonesia Pusat, but the entrance is not clearly marked - as we have to get guided by the security to the correct entrance after we almost entered a random office… The museum has great collection of postal stamps from all around the world and many historical pieces related...

No guide, dark lightning, and no interactive information. Actually, the curatory function is quite good for Museum Pos.

This place is a bit creepy but loaded with stamps from different times and countries. It is near other important places as well such as the Taman Lansia, Youghut Cisangkuy, Pasar Cisangkuy, Gedung Sate and others so it's worth a visit along with these other places.

Free entry and no crowd. Stamps collection was extensive including stamps from other countries. Very large room with other stamp related items (e.g. post box, envelope sorting and postal uniforms) besides stamps. However the place is quite creepy, it's not recommended if you're female and visit this place alone when it's no crowd..
