In 2017, The Postal Museum will open a new heritage attraction in Central London, with two experiences in one. Alongside the story of British social and communications history, we will offer a subterranean ride on the old Post Office Underground Railway – Mail Rail. This new museum and attraction will enable us to showcase the extraordinary stories from five centuries of one of the country’s most iconic services, grow our educational charity work and fundamentally change the way the organisation engages with its audiences. The Postal Museum will welcome over 180,000 visitors a year, along with a further 400,000 through our public events programme, digital and outreach offers. The Postal Museum will represent a significant addition to London’s cultural landscape.
