Old letters, postcards and postal objects have fortunately been preserved and can be admired (some in situations, in reenactments of scenes). Very nice collection of stamps in a special room. A small office offers the possibility to buy some nice stamps. The Mauritian craft shop is small and does not have great interest.
I heard about it so I decided to go and see by myself. There are several boards on the wall for readers who wants to learn thoroughly about the history of the post. As well as many objects which depicts how the post office functioned back in time. There is also an enlarged version of the so famous penny black stamp. Stamps archive are available on the first floor. Entrance fee for locals is Rs50 and Rs200 approximately for tourists I think.
It is the best place for stamps lovers. Also, a great place to learn about the history of Mauritius Postal services. From the British Colonial Postal Ways till now, it is shown clearly. Even for kids, they have prepared the cute little explanation for kids to understand easily. They have the collection on stamps since the beginning. The stamps are so pretty and many of them are detailedly portrait or drawn. Personally, I love the theme of the ships, the maps, the sugar cane factories. They all represent the development of the Island. Worth a visit to this wonderful museum. Other than this, you can also purchase some beautiful postcards here. The stamps can be bought on the other side of the museum.
