In July 2017, The Postal Museum opened London’s first major new museum in a decade. A new heritage attraction in Central London, with two experiences in one. Alongside the fascinating story of more than 500 years of the first social network, we offer an extraordinary subterranean ride through the previously abandoned, secret and forgotten tunnels of the old Post Office Underground Railway – Mail Rail. This new museum and attraction enables us to showcase an array of extraordinary stories focusing on human communication and endeavour. It also enables us to grow our educational charity work and fundamentally change the way the organisation engages with our audiences. The Postal Museum aims to welcome over 180,000 visitors a year, along with a further 400,000 through our public events programme, digital and outreach offers. Most recently, The Postal Museum has been nominated for the Art Fund Museum of the Year 2018.
