Visit the An Post Museum

A museum dedicated to philatelists

The An Post Museum offers a rather interesting exhibition on the history of An Post (the Irish Post Office). In this context, it offers a quick overview of the creation of the Irish Post, its logistics from the early days throughout the country, through the creation of its stamps. You will also find out all about the GPO (General Post Office in Dublin), which was one of the first buildings to suffer the full force of the Easter Uprising of 1916.

In particular, the museum makes available video documentaries, a copy of the 1916 Proclamation calling for the creation of an autonomous Irish Republic, as well as a multitude of old stamps. You will then be able to learn about Irish philately and how stamps are designed!

Also don’t miss the various testimonials from the staff, which are reproduced through a standard modified especially for the museum. You will discover the experiences of employees from the early 1900s!

A rather nice museum, which is worth a visit if you want to walk down O’Connell Street and drop by the Post Office to send a few postcards!
