Articles from EnRoute






EnRoute, the National Postal Museum's newsletter, premiered in January 1992, a year and a half before the Museum opened to the public. Since the first issue, a number of articles have appeared in the magazine exploring parts of the collection, providing background for exhibits, and allowing the Museum's staff to provide information on a variety of postal history topics to our readers.

A number of those articles are available online to the general public. Click on an article title to read it.
