17.02.2017 - Museum of Philatelic History launched

(RJ West) The Royal Philatelic Society London has announced that its Museum and Archives will in future be designated as ‘The Museum of Philatelic History’. The Museum will continue to be located at the Society's London premises.
By clarifying the purpose of the Museum in this way, the Society wants to bring it to the attention of a wider public and to encourage more visitors and researchers to take advantage of its extensive collections of artefacts and records (picture). It also wants to encourage collectors and societies to see the Museum as a natural repository for relevant material in need of a permanent home.
The change of name also differentiates the Museum from other philatelic institutions with different functions.
For further information about the Museum of Philatelic History, you may contact the Curator, Wesley Tierney, at or on 020 7486 1044. Mr. Tierney will be delighted to welcome visitors by appointment.
