Always a First-Class delivery at Bath Postal Museum
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.
