Malta Postal Museum

The Malta Postal Museum, located at 135, Archbishop Street, Valletta right next to The Palace is one of Malta's newest heritage attractions. Within our walls, we explore centuries of Maltese and Postal history starting early in the 16th century and moving on towards the present day. Located in a large restored town house and spread over four floors, the museum brings to life Maltese history and the important role played by the Post over the years.

From wafer seals and stamps to uniforms and bicycles, the Museum's collection marks historical milestones. It also tells the stories of the many individuals who played a part in the development of the Islands' history and communication. Documents and artefacts, stories and experiences have been painstakingly collected and carefully displayed to offer the visitor an insight into the rich and fascinating history of Malta and the Post. Do keep an eye out for our collection highlights. We have Malta's first stamp - the Halfpenny Yellow, a signed letter by Lord Nelson, a shiny red James ‘Captain' 200cc motorbike and the most touching love letter of all - written by an Italian Prisoner of War. The Museum also serves as an arts hub. It presently hosts a photographic exhibition of images taken by Richard Ellis, one of Malta's first photographers and dating back to the early nineteenth century. The Museum also exhibits a collection of original stamp artworks by Emvin Cremona - Malta's most famous stamp designer.

You can also visit our Museum Shop where art and philately come together to offer new products inspired by the amazing legacy of postal design. Pick up some of our colourful note cards, collectable lapel pins, bookmarks, stationery, silver stamps, presentation/ year packs, folders or books. You can also purchase our much loved museum mascot, ‘Peppi il-Pustier’ (Postman ‘Peppi’) designed and made exclusively for the Malta Postal Museum.
