Malta Postal Museum, Valletta

4.6
This state of the art building is spread over four floors and is not your typical Postal Museum. It offers a run through of Maltese history from the 15th century. The Museum also boasts of two temporary gallery spaces, a large audio-visual room and merchandising store. The temporary gallery spaces currently offer a collection of photographic prints by Richard Ellis, and what is arguably the finest collection of works by Emvin Cremona, regarded by many as one of the best Maltese artists of the 20th century.

  • This place is almost hidden in the Archbishop street. Also, they make customised Maltese stamps for you based on your personal photographs. Do not hesitate to ask!  more »
  • If you are interested in philately, postal history or just a piece of Maltese history, you are in a very good position here. The museum makes a very modern and well-structured impression. In addition to a complete collection of Maltese stamps, stamp designs, historical documents from all eras, a historical post office or a postal motorbike, it also offers some interesting anecdotes about Maltese (post) history.

  • This is such a great museum. It weaves the history of the postal service in Malta with the history of the island beautifully. A really interesting place to visit, with well made videos to compliment the displays. A real hidden gem.
  • Having worked for the Post Office in England for 40 years I found this museum very interesting. I felt quite old when I saw the same type of datestamp I first used shown as an exhibit! The museum was well laid out and Donna on the ticket desk was very welcoming and cheerful. Well worth a visit.
