The Korea Stamp Museum in Pyongyang in 2012-2013

North Korea

The Stamp Museum of Pyongyang is housed in a specially built three-floor building next to the well-known Koryo Hotel in downtown Pyongyang. The front of the building is designed in the shape of a stamp. In front of the building stands a bronze statue of a dove holding a postcard while flying around the earth up to the sky.

The front door leads to a hall with at the left end a grand staircase to the second floor where the stamp exhibition is located as well as a large stamp shop.

    1. Regret that I don’t have pictures taken from individual stamps on display. Once covid restrictions are over I might pay a visit again to Pyonyang and keep it in mind.
