At Bath Postal Museum we have something for everyone. We provide colourful, frequently changing exhibitions, interactive games and quizzes, models and collectables and feature historic 'talking heads' video characters.

There are also many fun activities for young family members, who can play the mail computer challenge, try on costumes and play our stunning 'potholes and pitfalls' boardgame. All visitors are also able to perforate their own sheet of stamps and the museum shop offers a large range of postcards and gifts. Groups and schools can be catered for.

A great deal of research was carried out at the Bath Postal Museum for the popular BBC1 programme, Larkrise to Candleford. Visitors to the Museum understand why, as it is like a 'peep behind the scenes'. If you have not yet been, come and see what we mean.
