  1. I visited the new museum on Feb 25 which was opened on the day of issuing the stamps. It now occupies the third floor of the Korea Stamp Centre next to the Koryo Hotel. I am writing an article to describe some of its features.

  2. Hi Tony, would be great to learn more about this museum. Also: what is the Korea Stamp Centre like? I have lived in South Korea, never been to the DPRK, therefore I do know the South Korean equivalents but not the North Korean ones.
