Yesterday I went to the National Postal Museum in DC.
the postal museum is located in DC next to Union Station
|admission to the museum is free and they’re open 365 (except Christmas!)
this is what you see when you first walk in
|lovely display of mailboxes|
the back drop of the Education Center, when you can use computers to simulate mail travel
|Outside the Alphabetilately exhibit|
|there is a small exhibit/shadow box for each letter of the alphabet|
|large exhibit about USA’s military mail|
|they certainly are..|
|combining my two current obsessions: textiles and mail!|
|super cool, right?|
|mini post office experience|
|part of a cute game where you threw the
packages into the appropriate bin based on
the address as part of the Systems At Work exhibit
|they had a table where you could write
your opinions on snail mail and there
were some cute ones
|the one I left spoke of my 365 project and asked for letters|
|all the slots were labeled and I found one for Baltimore, MD!|
In other news I’ve still been sending and receiving mail.
Have you ever been to the Postal Museum? What’s your favorite part of mail history?
Thanks for blogging about us! Great photos, too. Amazing to see how much great mail you’re sending and receiving!
Thank you, Erin! I always enjoy visiting you guys. 🙂 Thanks for posting. <3
