National Postal Museum Smithsonian



The Smithsonian's National Postal Museum is worth at least a couple of hours of your time.

You will learn the history of the U S postal service through stories, videos, objects, and of course, stamps.










Some rare stamps are featured in the stamp exhibit













One exhibit includes cases of mail fraud and robberies





There are activities for children. And if you wish to spend a longer time, you can read the storyboards in each exhibit.

Fees- no entry fee

Security- there is a security screening

Tours are available at no charge.

Shopping- there is a museum store with reasonable prices

Location- 2 Massachusetts Ave. NE Washington DC

Metro- we used Union Station, which has the advantage of lots of places to eat at reasonable prices
