Welcome to the Malta Postal Museum - home to an extensive collection of postal artefacts related to Malta’s long and colourful history. Our museum is housed in a converted Valletta home which has retained its Baroque façade but has also been extensively remodeled throughout its interior to best display the collection in a contemporary setting.
Spread over four floors, the museum explores centuries of postal history starting way back in the 16th century during the time of the Order of St. John in Malta. The collection not only marks historic milestones but also tells the stories of the numerous individuals who played a part in the development of Malta’s communication.
The building was designed and equipped to handle the needs of visitors with special mobility requirements and our museum has a lift to all floors. The building is fully air-conditioned.

A collective exhibiton of works in clay is being exhibited at the Malta Postal Museum & Arts Hub. The works on display hail from 17 different studios and combine local and Sicilian ceramists. This collective follows on from a pervious roaming exhibition Vasi Communicati held in Sicily in March 2018, commemorating the influence of the life and works of the well-known, Sciacca-born ceramist Cosimo Barna on his peers.
The museum houses a fully operational post office where you can avail yourself of most postal services - buy stamps, register letters / with AR, buy and encash money and postal orders, top-up your philatelic account as well as personalize your stamps and post letters. Our counter staff are more than happy to assist you.
