I know what you’re thinking – a postal museum? – and have this to say: I love getting off the beaten path. Since people seem to cover the same places over and over again, I’ve made it a point to try seeing the places where most foreigners don’t venture.
The 우정박물관 (u-jeong bak-mul-gwan) was originally on the fourth floor of Seoul’s main post office. After the building was torn down, the postal museum moved here in February 2004, and is part of the Ministry of Information and Communication Officials Training Institute in Cheonan. The museum covers the entire history of the postal system, but covers it in a fairly swift fashion that doesn’t take long to see.
