The Bhutan Postal Museum, Evolution of Communications Systems in Bhutan, was founded in 2015 to commemorate the 60th birthday of His Majesty King Jigme Singye Wangchuck, the Fourth Druk Gyalpo. The museum’s primary goal is to portray the story of Bhutan’s progress and development through the evolution of the country’s communications and postal systems. Anecdotes, relics, and the vast collection of stamps created by the country throughout the years are used to tell the story.
From the earliest mail couriers to Bhutan’s often odd and highly collectible stamps, the museum’s five exhibits illustrate the development of Bhutan’s postal system.
The first gallery is utilized for temporary exhibitions that change with the country’s important occasions and stamp launches.
The second gallery examines the evolution of communication during the pre-postal era, when government decrees and messages were delivered by messengers.
The third gallery depicts the evolution of Bhutan’s postal and telegraph systems, with antique postal and telegraphic equipment, devices, and furnishings on display.
The stamp issues dedicated to the Wangchuck Dynasty are on display in Gallery IV, together with information on the monarchy’s establishment in 1907 and a brief biography of Bhutan’s consecutive monarchs.
Bhutan’s postal stamps are on exhibit at Gallery V, to promote the country’s independence, rich culture, and fauna and flora. Bhutan’s famous ‘Talking Stamps,’ for example, are on show. It is also an interactive area where the visitors will be educated through activities and programs as well as documentaries about the postal system is screened.
