The Postal Museum (Postimuseo) in Tampere, Finland
Opened to the public in 1927 in Helsinki, the Postimuseo has moved to Tampere in 2014. Learn more about the Postal Museum of Finland from the museum’s website. Just to get an idea, we copied the following from the Introduction at the “Collections” webpage:
The Postal Museum’s collections shed light on the history of postal services in Finland and the development of Posti Group. The collections include artefacts and documents from the late 16th century up to the present day. Today, we collect contemporary phenomena using various technologies.
Our collections include artefacts from a quill pen to a postbus. The stamp collection includes stamps and material relating to their production as well as philatelic reference collections. The image collections include photographs, films, posters and postcards. The Postal Museum also has a large collection of stampers.
Archived materials, such as maps, postal brochures and forms, newspaper and magazine clippings and historical postal documents, constitute interesting source materials for both researchers and hobbyists. The museum library contains information to support philatelic and postal history research.
