Spend about half an hour to explore the space, the gardens and the shop (great stamps and gifts!) if you are not into philatelist. If you like and collect stamp you should allow a few hours. The collection seems global and vast.

This beautiful, small museum is one of the hidden gems of the city. Amazingly maintained, the hotel is located in a redecorated traditional house with three beautiful patios.

This museum is beautifully laid-out with interesting exhibits and unexpected little gardens. The vault-like room with amazing stamps and letters was particularly interesting and the special exhibit on baseball was a nice surprise. Highly recommended.

You might think, "Do I really want to go to a stamp museum?" but YES YOU DO. This place is absolutely more than stamps. It's a beautiful stunning space. It's free (donation suggested)

Hardly a museum, part of a room at the stamp shop/post office. Lovely stamps for sale. 15 minutes maximum to see everything.
