Bath Postal Museum gives a great opportunity to learn, not only the interesting history of the Postal Service but also of the communication.
All ages will enjoy this little museum, with a mixture of video recordings, interactive displays and other exhibits on the history of the Mail Coach, air transport and airmail, military mail, sea mail and railways. You can learn about post from ancient times such as the Bronze Age and what it was like during Roman and Medieval times. There are talking heads to listen to and a dressing up box for the kids (and big kids!) so you can dress in the costumes such as that of an old fashioned postie.
You can also find out about the history of the British Postbox but also about postal services around the world.
The staff are friendly and welcoming and only to happy to answer any questions you or the kids have.
There is a Postman Pat themed area for the kids, plus the chance to actually touch some really interesting relics.
