The Postal Museum - All aboard for 2022 πŸš‚


Start 2022 with a little escapism 

Kick start January with a visit to The Postal Museum. There’s 500 years of postal communications to explore in our galleries and an underground world to discover on board Mail Rail, a 100 year old postal railway.

Remember, a ticket to the museum gives you entry to our galleries for a whole year!
