National Philatelic Museum
Located in Dak Bhawan, Sardar Patel Chowk on Parliament Street or Sansad Marg, National Philatelic Museum can aptly be described as a ‘philatelist’s paradise’. The museum has an extensive collection of rare stamps of pre and post independence period. Among its many precious possessions, the museum houses the first stamp issued in India by the Sindh Dak in the year 1854.
A visit to the museum will definitely be interesting and enriching, as the museum provides a lot of information about the postal history of India and a good insight into India’s Philatelic Heritage. Apart from having all the Indian stamps issued so far by the Government of India as well as the princely states, the museum also has a large collection of foreign stamps, first day covers & special cancellations on display. There is also a sale counter outside the museum, which sells stamps from all over the world.
