RPSL Gallery

There are 3 display areas at the RPSL

Museum of the RPSL - Temporary galleriesMuseum of the RPSL - Permanent galleries

Permanent displays are located in the basement.  These reflect the breadth of the Museum collections covering:

  • The History of the Society
  • The Stamps lifecycle - we tell the story of a stamps life from when it was created at the printers, subsequently used in postal services and by people, then how it changes into a collectable item which is displayed at exhibitions 

Further permanent wall displays of medals are situated along the stairs and on some of the landings, and are well worth a look.  Rare casts of the Wyon and Machin heads are also on display in the Alma & Ron Lee Meeting Room.

Temporary displays of material from the Museum, Archive, Library and Philatelic Collections are found in the main foyer, the large library and on the mid-floor before the first floor

Access: The Permanent displays are accessible via stairs or stair lift; the Temporary displays on the first floor do not have stair lift accessibility. 

Please note that the main entrance to this listed building has some steps.  For further details, contact us before visiting.
