A little different and not very busy. Do visit if you have seem all the other sites bath had to offer. Be aware that the curator had not had a lot of opportunity to chat so may take up some time before you get in. A very interesting little place and offers domineering different especially given the impact bath had on our modern day post office. Well worth an hour to wonder around.

Was suggested by a friend and proved to be a great lesson in the history of the Post Office and its impact on the development of the City of Bath.
It is small but so is the entry fee. Well worth an hour during your visit to Bath.

A tiny little museum but very interesting. Impressed with how interactive each section is. The main strength though was the volunteer/member of staff (Tuesday 24th Oct). She couldn't have been more informative, interesting or helpful. Thank you for a very interesting visit.

This tiny museum has many micro exhibits due to lack of space and survives mainly on admissions. We used the old hand cancel stamper, learned that the famous Half Penny Black first came from Bath, etc. The staff is quite helpful as well.
