The Postal Museum is the leading resource for all aspects of British postal history and is located at Mount Pleasant in Central London.
For a number of years, The Postal Museum has sought a new home where rich collections could be held in the appropriate environmental conditions with public access significantly improved. A location was identified for this new facility adjacent to Royal Mail’s Mount Pleasant site.
The overall project involved the conversion and refurbishment of Calthorpe House, retaining its 1920’s façade and creating six interactive exhibition spaces. The scheme also included the creation of a unique visitor experience; an interactive ride in the previously hidden Mail Rail tunnels at this Central London location.
The Postal Museum brings to life five centuries of history that have been hidden from view - until now.
