Collection(s)The idea of organizing a stamps museum is not new. It dates from the last ten-year period of the 19th century, when there were some private tries of organizing this kind of museum. The General Department of Telegraph and Postal Services tried hard to establish a Postal Museum, but this was only achieved around 1891. The new museum was presented to the public at the general Exhibition of 1906, when the well-known architect Grigore Cerchez, general manager of the Post at the time, rebuilt an old postal inn on the Exhibition precincts and presented there various items of postal history and the stamps of the General Department of Telegraph and Postal Services. However, the museum was short-life. In 1958, on the occasion of Romanian Postal Mark centenary, the Minister Council emitted a decision of founding a philately museum, decision that unfortunately was not materialized. According to the G.D.287/03.04.2004, it was decided to give the title of museum of national importance to the National Philately Museum. The year 2004 marks the rebirth of this museum, by the will, determination, decision and efforts of the friends of philately and of the Post. The inauguration took place on 1st October 2004, during the U.P.U. Congress in Bucharest. The museum is located in a state-owned building, managed by the National History Museum. In conformity with the G.D. no.287/04.03.2004, the location where the National Philately Museum carries on its activity is allotted free of charge. The National Philately Museum is subordinated to the National History Museum of Romania since 2014. The building is closed for restoration. The museum owns goods listed in the National Cultural Heritage Treasure.
