There are only a handful of museums that interest both the young and the old. The Philatelic Museum in Bangalore is located within the premises of the General Post Office (GPO) on Ambedkar Veedhi.
The ground floor has postal counters that sell stamps, covers, post cards and other postal paraphernalia. The museum has hundreds of stamps of different countries, denominations, sizes and periods. Almost all the stamps printed in India from 1947 are displayed.
Both the types of stamps are exhibited- the limited Commemorative stamps and Definitive stamps.
