Located just blocks from the U.S. Capitol, the Smithsonian National Postal Museum is home to the world’s largest museum philatelic collection. This renowned collection includes more unique and iconic U.S. stamps than any other postal museum in the nation.
Through its exhibitions and programs, the museum spreads the love of philately, generates excitement about the popular hobby of stamp collecting, and allows millions of people to examine rare philatelic gems that would not otherwise be accessible.
Now the museum has an extraordinary opportunity—a chance to expand into a magnificent space that befits its world-class collection. This new space will enable the National Postal Museum to reach its full potential by dramatically increasing the collection’s visibility, advancing its educational mission, and reinvigorating public interest in philately.
