Postage Stamp Museum of Mongolia Interview with Ms. Minjmaa

Postage Stamp Museum of Mongolia

Location: Postage Stamp Museum, UB

Year: 2015

The Postage Stamp Museum in Ulaanbaatar was founded in 2003 and moved to the city’s central post office building in 2014. The museum preserves from the first Mongolian stamp, called Eldev-Ochir, to the modern stamps of today. There are also various types of envelopes, which are issued in a new format each time a new stamp is issued. Once the Mongolian author has defined the design, 10,000 to 20,000 Mongolian stamps are printed, often in China, per edition.
Minjmaa, manager of the Postage Stamp Museum in Ulaanbaatar, tells the story of the various stamps in the collection, made from a variety of materials – from cotton to silver and silk – and the history they conceal.
