Shanghai Postal Museum

(en.study-shanghai.org) | Aug 28, 2015


The Shanghai Postal Museum displays the history of the postal service in China.

As the first provincial museum in the national postal system, Shanghai Postal Museum opened to the public on Jan 1, 2006.

Located in the Shanghai Post Building on North Suzhou Road, the museum exhibits a wide variety of artifacts that are related to postal development: a mail dispatch machine, postal uniforms, old mailboxes, postal bicycles and motorcycles.

The museum also features stamps dating back to the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), but its collection includes those from countries such as Canada, Brazil, New Zealand, France, Austria and more. If that’s not enough, visitors enter a separate dark room maintained exclusively for treasured stamps.

The museum also gives a rundown on the life of Zhu Xuefan, the country’s first postal department minister.

After finishing a stroll on the second floor, take a look at further relics on the first floor, on the courtyard show field. The courtyard of the Shanghai Post encompasses an area larger than 1,000 square meters. The renovated courtyard showcases reproduced artifacts such as a Qing Dynasty post carriage, the first mail car, and a train post office in which the visitor can see an official postal document.

All in all, this museum offers an experience that can be enjoyed by visitors of all ages.
