Visiting the An Post Museum


Letters, Lives & Liberty

Situated in a corner of Dublin's historic GPO is the An Post Museum where our exhibition - Letters, Lives & Liberty – reveals the fascinating story of the Post Office in Ireland.

Who should visit us?

The An Post Museum is designed to appeal to everyone who has some interest in Ireland’s history or in particular aspects of that story. The Post Office has been associated with so much - be it communications, transport, politics, architecture, stamps and of course 1916 –  that we are sure you will find something to interest you. We cater for young and old, school groups and retired people and will do our best to tailor a tour for any particular interest group.

Booking a tour

We can arrange tours for groups of 10 to 25 people. Bookings for guided tours should be made online by prior arrangement by telephoning us on 01-7057420, by e-mailing or by enquiry at the Philatelic & Museum Shop in the GPO.
