  • The Postal Museum has a lot of exhibits, and seems to mainly cater for younger audiences, though learning about the history of the post is suitable for all ages. Highlights were the pneumatic tube sending machines, and being able to dress up in older costumes. The Rail Mail is quite short, but a fun experience. It's quite cramped, but learning about the history of the railway was entertaining and there were some videos and some interactive pieces at the end. It's a separate payment however. Overall an excellent experience for a decent price.
  • Riding the Mail Rail is fun but a little on the short side - it's just a thrill to be completely immersed in something so odd and once so hidden. But the permanent exhibition itself is truly exceptional and worth visiting. As somebody with minimal interest in the Royal Mail, it managed to stay completely engaging and informative and I easily could have stayed another hour. Lots of comprehensive information here with enthusiastic docents. It's fascinating how the postal service touches practically all aspects of modern history in this country. Highly recommended.
