Last chance to see exhibition

The latest family-friendly exhibition at Mansfield Museum comes to an end this weekend.

The British Postal Museum & Archive (BPMA) touring exhibition Pop it in the Post: Your World at the end of the Street will be hosted by Mansfield Museum until Saturday, November 21. It explores the new and sometimes quirky ideas that made the mail accessible to all.

Children and adults can discover the story of the letter writing revolution, enabled by the introduction of the world’s first stamp, the Penny Black, in 1840, and the UK’s first pillar boxes in 1852, learning about the individuals who made this possible.
