Learn About Rare Stamps
Post office on Fired
The Postal Museum was built in 1897, but unfortunately it was destroyed by a fire in 1916, then redesigned and built by the British in the same year. In 1938, after the Japanese occupation of Guangzhou, there were few buildings left around the Xidi (west causeway), and the post office was burned to the point where only a frame remained. It was later restored and has been preserved until now.
The museum displays commemorative editions of stamps from various eras. On the first floor is the Philatelic Exhibition and Sales Center, which displays rare philatelic products and sells various types of philatelic products. The second and third floors respectively exhibit China's long history of postal communication development and Guangzhou's postal changes with Lingnan characteristics.
