The Postal Museum

The Postal Museum covers over 500 years of postal communication in all its forms. Its archives detail how humans have communicated over the years, especially in an age before the digital world transformed how we connect with one another. This extraordinary collection includes a subterranean rail ride, which at the time was the world’s first automated driverless railway, and a whole host of interactive galleries to immerse yourself within.


The museum began life in 2004 as The British Postal Museum & Archive and changed its name mid-2017 to its current title. The collection also features telegrams sent by passengers on board the Titanic the night it went down, and the original copy of James Joyce’s masterful novel, Ulysses.
