Giddy up for the Pony Express at the National Postal Museum. This quirky, interesting museum takes visitors on a journey through the history of the mail transport system – from land, sea, air, and even space. It has replicas of early airmail planes that delivered mail, as well as details on the short-lived but often romanticized Pony Express. Some of the artifacts on display include a 1390 Silk Road letter and Amelia Earhart’s leather flight suit. An interactive stamp exhibit delves into aspects of stamp design and production, as well as stories behind some of the most famous, historical stamps. Visitors can create their own stamp designs and watch videos from stamp designers. Another, related exhibit shows off stamps from around the world.

The National Postal Museum occupies the old City Post Office Building that dates back to 1914. The Museum occupies 100,000 square feet, dedicated to its exhibits, a research library, a stamp store, and a museum gift shop. The building itself is a draw for architecture lovers, with a 90-foot-high atrium that inspires admiration. The building also houses the United States Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics.
