Postal Museum Celebrates 15 Years

From a letter to an old friend to a bill sent to the electric company, mail is a large part of Americans’ lives. For many years, though, it was not recognized with anything as grand as a national museum. That changed 15 years ago when a small exhibit grew into the National Postal Museum that now sits at the corner of Massachusetts Avenue Northeast and North Capitol Street.

The museum, which opened in 1993, is celebrating its anniversary this year with a slew of special events and festivities culminating in a large celebratory exhibit in September.
