Situated at walking distance from Patel Chowk, this museum is gem of a place for stamp collectors/lovers. Well maintained with huge collection of post independence era. Though the collection hasn’t been updated after 2014. Entry is free.

National Philatelic Museum is a real gem for museum lovers. It has a great collection from 1947 to 2014 year wise as well as tiny corner for International stamps. It takes at least 2 hrs to see. After 2014,nothing is displayed over there. That made me sad :(
It is very well maintained museum. No entry fees and just few steps from Patel Chowk metro station.
They have a shop inside if you wanna buy table top or stamp book for reasonable prize. They have some fridge magnets, but that does not look like a stamp.

Summer holidays are on and the children cannot be separate from screens. This museum offers a good change.
Very accessible - only a few steps away from the Patel Chowk metro station.
Entry is free; Photography is not allowed.
There are many stamps, but very few are foreign.
You could spend an hour gazing at the little pieces of paper use of which is becoming rarer by the day - thanks to email, whatsapp, courier,...
The highlight for my two sons was that for Rs. 300/- one could have one's own picture as a stamp. There are various themes to choose from, and a set of Rs. 5/- stamps is handed to you, each of the stamps can have your customized picture attached.
All in all, a good break from the routine.

It is a postal museum on the ground floor of the central post office or Dak Bhavan on Sansad Marg near Connaught Place of New Delhi. It displays stamps of pre/ post independence era, plus stamps from different countries in different sections. They organize Philatelic workshops for students and they have a small shop for stamps, post cards, stamp books and gifts. It's a great place for tourists including young learners to get educated in philately.

The museum seems to have loads of stamps from the same era while few decades are completely missed/ignored. It is still a nice way to get to know the history better.
