I must confess, not an easy place to locate. I am glad we did not give up, as it explained how the Swedish post service has evolved over the years.

I went here with my wife and three year old son in Aug 2016. We went at 11.00 when the place opened and went directly to the Lilla posten downstairs. It was great! Kid got to drive and pack an old postal car, stamp packaging cards and draw a card. We got a stamp to Finland for free to send... More

I love this little museum, situated in the old Town of Stockholm. It has a really beautiful shop with many things to by for stationery fanatics. It is all about writing and stamps. There is a child area for children to do some crafts and decorating and they change exhibitions every now and then. It is a quiet museum and... More

You have got to come here for the buffet alone. The history of the Swedish Post Service, excellent exhibits, fabulous curation and stamp collection is second to the excellent food and friendly service on offer. You get a Michelin-standard two-course meal for £10-12 at lunch time. What's not to love?

I always try to find Post Museums, and this one, fortunately is very centric, right in Gamla Stan. It is the oldest post office in Stockholm (1760) and it has been also a museum since 1906. There is all the history of comunication very well arranged , with a fantastic collection of stamps, several old letters diplayed with incredibly beautiful... More

I've been so many times in this Museum. Staff are really nice and lot of different items could be viewed. Do not miss lunch in their restaurant, it is also nice. They have several good meeting rooms. Location is perfect, Old city, few steps from Gamla Stan subway station. On the opposite side of the street, very good Victory hotel... More

Staying in Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen

Neighbourhood Profile
Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen
Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting: take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest) alleys, which will make you feel like you’ve travelled back in time. This neighborhood offers a great combination of historical buildings and traditional Swedish restaurants.
