About the event

The Postal Museum’s new temporary exhibition The Great Train Robbery: Crime and The Post, launching in October, will shine a light on the victims of this infamous crime and the involvement of the Post Office Investigation Branch in tracing the perpetrators of the Great Train Robbery and other crimes, from mass murder to forgeries.

A largely unknown organisation and one of the oldest units of its kind in the world, its heroic detectives put their lives on the line to solve high profile crimes and bring those responsible to justice.

Visitors to the exhibition will be immersed in the work of the Branch, stepping into an interactive 1960s postal investigation office to piece together crimes and uncover investigation techniques.

There will also be a programme of children’s activity and workshops making this an exhibition for the entire family.
