Help us care for more than 500 years of communications history.

The Postal Museum tells the story of postal communication and its impact on a global society. We use our collections to explore stories around communication, and to inspire everyone to make richer and more meaningful connections in their lives.

With your support we can:

  • Conserve, catalogue and digitise our collections. By supporting our heritage, you can ensure their future, inspiring the historians, designers, engineers, writers and film makers who visit the archive, as well as the diverse communities who enjoy the museum every day.
  • Unlock partnerships with academics, artists, radical thinkers and communities, making the museum experience richer and lighting the spark of new ideas that could shape tomorrow’s world.
  • Grow our learning and community engagement programmes: the stories of human connection in our collections inspire our award-winning schools’ learning experiences, as well as programmes that improve wellbeing, increase confidence, and alleviate social isolation.

Below you can find just some of the ways you can give to us. Please click the links to find out more or contact us at: or on +44 (0)300 0300 700.
