An Post Museum at the GPO (General Post Office)

An Post Museum
Situated in a corner of Dublin's GPO, The An Post Museum houses the exhibition - Letters, Lives & Liberty.

The Letters, Lives and Liberty exhibition explores the influence of the Post Office in Ireland and offers an insight into the role played by Post Office people in the development of Irish society over many years. From stamps and stamp collecting to An Post's copy of the 1916 Proclamation and the little known story of the staff who were actually in the GPO on Easter Monday, the exhibition is a unique way to learn about the importance of the Post Office in Irish life.

The Letters, Lives and Liberty exhibition has lots to offer visitors interested in Irish history and for those who wish to learn more about Dublin and Ireland.

There are short documentaries that detail the local history of Dublin that show how the post office was involved socio-political matters and there are other documentaries detailing the ways in which transport and technology has changed business and everyday life.

The GPO is not only the headquarters of the post office in Ireland, it is the birthplace of Irish communications.
