National Philatelic Museum in Bucharest

"Rather obscure for many, but nevertheless an important cultural institution in Bucharest, the National Philatelic Museum is the perfect place for those passionate about this old and delicate art of collecting stamps, mainly highly valuable ones, but also for those who are interested in the history of postal services in Romania," reports

It goes on to say, "Until 1970 this was the central post office of Bucharest, then turned into this impressive museum, with 600 squared meters of exhibition space, where visitors can admire some of the best stamps and philatelic objects and collections, as well as a selection of documents, correspondence, artifacts and different objects depicting the history of Romanian postal services."
