When I located the museum I saw that the lights were off.So I went in and happily the owner put on the lights.There are displayed stamps from the colonial days,from Victoria to Elizabeth.No stamps issued by the Cypriot post office were displayed.A worthwhile half hour.

the museum is small and the entrance is free .It is a good idea, although it needs some "tidying up" you can see Cyprus stamps from the beginning and also some equipment that wa sused. You can also buy stamps for your collection
