Please, Mr. Postman

May 29, 2013

USA

Washington, D.C. is full of big, impressive and amazing museums. But as a champion for the underdog, my favourite is the National Postal Museum, the Smithsonian’s little brother to its millions of visitors pulling big siblings on the National Mall. And hey, they even *do* have a dog! Situated next to Union Station, it’s appropriately located in the old Post Office building and was actually created in an agreement between the Smithsonian Institution and the United States Postal Service in the early 1990s. I’ve written more extensively about it previously during our visit three years ago, and it was also included in my Washington, D.C. edition of ‘Kids in Museums’. But since it’s a museum that’s very dear to my heart, I wanted to share some more photographs with you. And hopefully if you ever find yourselves in D.C., you’ll remember it’s there!

    I haven’t visited Washington yet (far away but still on my list of things to do) and I didn’t know it owned such amazing museums! I am a fan of letters (I love to write them to friends, I am a paper enthusiast) so this museum looks just so great! The photos are beautiful, too! Thank you so much for sharing! :)
