What to expect

Step into the colorful galleries at the Postal Museum to discover exciting and unexpected stories from five centuries of British and world history through the eyes of the first social network. From an escaped lioness to a five-wheeled cycle and even the odd pistol, too - there's nothing ordinary about the story of the post. Your ticket also includes access to the Mail Rail ride and exhibition across the road.

Explore the interactive displays to try your hand as a Mail Coach guard, send a message via a pneumatic tube or even put your face on a stamp. Reveal the story of the 100-year-old miniature postal railway. Hear about the people that kept it running before trying your hand at sorting the mail on a traveling Post Office train carriage with its very own wobbly floor. There’s nothing ordinary about the story of the post.

From five-wheeled cycles and rockets to a lioness and flintlock pistols, the award-winning Postal Museum offers a surprising and entertaining half-day out for all ages. Forget what you think you know about the post and visit one of London's newest museums to discover just what it took to keep us all in touch. Purchase the downloadable audio guide to optimize your visit to the museum and listen to the background information and facts through your own device.
