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

The website is informative

Here’s a few places to see along with some photos and links to information.
