Expert review of Bath Postal Museum
Continuing Bath’s theme of slightly bizarre mini-museums, the Postal Museum picks up the baton and runs with it. There’s something gloriously kitsch about this museum, where you can even perforate your own stamps, and I actually learned a lot about the postal service and Bath’s importance in its development- the first ever Penny Black stamp was posted from here. This is more a museum for people who have been to Bath several times and fancy doing something different – you never know when all this postal trivia will come in handy for a pub quiz. It’s also great for kids with interactive educational games and dressing up clothes for them to play with.
Adult tickets cost £3.50.
