Postal Museum

Postal Museum

The Postal Museum is based in central London and has something for the whole family, from the subterranean rail ride to the history of our post and lots more, this is one museum not to miss.


The Postal Museum reveals the surprising and fascinating story of the first social network and makes our extraordinary collections available and enjoyable for all.

From interactive galleries to an immersive subterranean rail ride, modern research facilities to a wide-range of learning activities, The Postal Museum offers something for everyone, from all backgrounds and of all ages.

Ultimately, behind The Postal Museum lies the Postal Heritage Trust, an independent charity created to protect and share this rich history.

We are an ambitious, forward-thinking institution with an amazing story to tell.

We exist to showcase our stories and collections and reveal the fascinating story of Britain’s postal heritage in an engaging, interactive, educational and fun way.
