The origin of postal services in Mauritius date back to the early 17th century in the form of a series of letters exchanged between the island and other parts of the world. It started happening right after people set foot in Mauritius for the first time, namely the Dutch. Quite evidently, the post office in Mauritius holds an essential position in defining the country’s history; so is the Mauritius Postal Museum that stands within an old building adjacent to the post office of Mauritius that is located near the Port Louis Waterfront.
The Mauritius Post opened the Mauritius Postal Museum in 1995 that exhibits various stamps and miscellaneous articles from all over the world. The latest addition to the display in the museum includes the history of Mauritius Post, and it is portrayed through photographs and other visual displays. The Mauritius Postal Museum was declared as a specialised museum in 2000.
