An Post Museum General Post Office

The General Post Office, with its distinguished classical façade, is perhaps the most famous building in Irish history. It was there that Irish independence was declared during the 1916 Easter Rising.

That story and the particular role of the GPO staff caught up in the rebellion forms part of the exhibition Letters, Lives and Liberty in the An Post Museum. Using innovative audio-visual technology, visitors can gain an insight into the remarkable role the Post Office has played in the development of Irish society over many generations.

From trains and telephones to post boxes and the Proclamation of 1916 – not to mention a few stamps! – this small museum opens up for young and old many hidden and forgotten aspects of Irish daily life.
