Things to do The Postal Museum review
At the Postal Museum in London, you can ride through hidden tunnels and discover unique pieces of British history. There are exhibitions packed full of incredible objects, exciting stories and lots of fun-filled interactive displays.
In the Postal Museum exhibitions, you can explore the history of ‘post’. This is a bright and colourful area with plenty to see and explore. A highlight to a visit is the 15-minute journey back in time through the original postal tunnels and station platforms. You can see and hear stories from the people that have worked there. Their interactive exhibits bring to life more than 100 years of postal engineering.
Kids will love the interactive role-play space. It is an immersive mini-town with streets, buildings, trolleys, pulleys, slides and chutes. It’s a great space to set children’s imaginations going through ‘postal play’. A session in this space lasts for 45 minutes. Make sure you book your child’s place at Sorted!
