Corporate support

As the first major national museum to open in London in over ten years, The Postal Museum offers a range of exclusive opportunities for you and your organisation, aligning your brand with over five centuries of Britain’s communications heritage.

By partnering with us, we can help your brand reach 1.2 million people a year:

  • 185,000 visitors through our doors
  • 10,000 schoolchildren through our Schools Programme
  • 4,700 families, disadvantaged and vulnerable people through our Community programmes
  • 4,000 visitors to our Discovery Room and Archive
  • 1 million people through our website

Our audiences come to us from right across London and the UK, as well as internationally. And because the history of the post touches on so many important subjects (from art, design, communications and social history to genealogy, engineering and transport) our visitors’ backgrounds and interests reflect the wideness and diversity of our collection.
