The Malta Postal Museum is run by the Maltese postal operator MaltaPost.
The museum is located in a renovated 20th-century tenement house in the center of Valletta, close to the Grand Master’s Palace and the Church of Our Lady of Damascus. The museum is not big, but it consists of several floors.
The activities of the museum were opened by the President of Malta Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca on June 17, 2016. The museum is supported by the European Union Regional Development Fund.
The collection of the Malta Post Office contains documents and other items related to the history of Malta postal mail from the 16th century to modern times, on par with all Maltese postage stamps issued from 1860 to 2010. The collection is organized to show the role of postal services in various periods of Malta’s history.
In the museum there is a souvenir shop, a section for children and two galleries for occasional exhibitions. The first exhibition presented the works of Emvin Cremony, the most famous Maltese stamp designer.
