Overview

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 is a well presented museum which covers the social history surrounding the development of the postal service in Malta. Sure, some of the details are only for devotees of the subject, but there is enough in the video presentation and in the exhibits to...More

We were delighted to see such a modern atmosphere in a post museum. Of course there were lots and lots of stamps, but also old letters and some video presentations etc. The staff was very helpful and professional.

Light, well presented museum. Wonderful collection of stamps and postal history, and also social history. A little gem and something a little different. Great toilet facilities. I would consider the museum to be wheelchair friendly.

A very well presented history of the island. Some stamps brought back memories of my boyhood years as one could follow events that took place through each stamp issue.

I was on a tight schedule, so I only visited the post office inside the museum, to buy some stamps for collection. They have many, many Maltese stamps and they also provide useful suggestions. The person in charge of the philatelic sales was very friendly...More
