National Postal Museum

Audio-visual and interactive presentations in this family-friendly museum detail the invention and history of stamps, the postal service, the role of letters as a means of communication (including letters to and from soldiers during wartime), and stamp collecting. The frequent special exhibitions aren’t likely to bowl over serious philatelists. They should head to the museum’s huge library and research center.
