The Postal Museum
About This Event
As a result of the ongoing Coronavirus outbreak, The Postal Museum is currently closed to the public, however, the gardens are still open. We'll keep this updated with news of when it might be open again, but always recommend checking before you travel.
If you think The Postal Museum is just about getting your letters sent, think again! With a train ride, an adventure play zone, and even a lion (?!), the post has taken on a whole new meaning.
Hop aboard the Mail Rail, a miniature train which takes you on an underground exploration, with more than a few surprises… Mail Rail will speed you through old-fashioned tunnels and platforms, before dropping kids off ready for more fun at Sorted! - the postal play space where kids under 8 can immerse themselves in a tiny town of slides, chutes and trolleys.
The exhibits are packed with curiosities that unveil the story of the very first social network. Kids can get hands-on in an interactive exhibits based in an abandoned engineering depot, then discover the weird and wonderful things sent in the past like Victorian Valentines cards and even an actual lion!
