Patronage and Individual Support

Patrons and donors play a critical role and are at the very heart of our museum.

We aim to bring you closer to everything we do here with visits, expert-led tours and private viewings of our exhibitions, extraordinary collections and archives so you can experience everything that makes The Postal Museum special and a place worth protecting.

Support from Patrons enables us to present outstanding exhibitions, conserve and digitise our valuable Postal Museum Archive and deliver our extensive learning and community programmes.

By becoming a Patron, you join a group of passionate and engaged supporters to whom we are truly grateful.
