The Philatelic and Postal Museum, located in a privileged position next to the Kallimarmaro Panathinaiko Stadium in the shadow of the Acropolis, connects in a special way the history of Greece with personal memories and everyday life. The Hellenic Post Office and the Philatelic Associations, in order to collect, preserve and display historical objects, which were used since the establishment of the Postal Service in Greece, created the Philatelic and Postal Museum. Its foundation received legal status in 1966. In 1977, the building, which houses the Museum to this day, was donated by the philatelist Nia Andrea Stratou, wife of the politician Andreas Stratou, and began operating under the supervision of the Hellenic Post.
