Museum of the Year

We are thrilled to announce that The Postal Museum has been shortlisted for two prestigious heritage awards; Permanent Exhibition for the Museums + Heritage Awards 2018 (with hsd) and the Art Fund’s Museum of the Year prize 2018.

hsd worked with The Postal Museum to produce their major new exhibition telling the stories from one of Britain’s most iconic and remarkable services. The museum is also the home of Mail Rail, a brand new and unique ride transporting visitors back in time through the disused miniature tunnels of the world’s first driverless, electric railway which was used to transport mail under the capital.

The Art Fund Prize celebrates innovation and exceptional achievement in museums and galleries across the UK. The Museum of the Year winner for 2018 will be announced on 5th July.

The Museums + Heritage Awards celebrate best practice within the world of museums and attract hundreds of entries each year.  Winners for all 11 categories will be announced on the 16th May.

Best of luck to The Postal Museum!
