Postal museum on the move

Imagine what it must be like to move a museum.

The British Postal Museum and Archive – which is almost two museums on two sites – is about to relocate from, well, just about everywhere in the south east. Their collection is currently spread over a number of sites in London and Essex and it’s all about to be brought together into a nwely reconditioned building in Swindon.

The Wiltshire town is fast becoming the new cultural heritage capital of the country, with the National Trust’s headquarters and STEAM already on the site, by the Great Western Railway.

The project is well underway in planning, with an HLF phase 2 application due in autumn 2011. All the details, as per norm, on Museum [Insider].
