History of the Swedish Post Office

The classicist building in Lilla Nygatan has belonged to the Post Office since 1720 and was once the seat of the Post Office Directorate, initially the city’s only post office. In addition to a large historical collection of old documents, photos, objects and uniforms, the museum has one of the most valuable stamp collections in the world.

Especially for children there is the exhibition “Lilla Posten” (little post), where the youngsters can stamp, sort and deliver mail.

In the museum is the restaurant Treskillingen, where a lunch buffet is served from Tue-Sun from 11 am.
