The National Postal Museum is a Smithsonian Institution museum and is located in the old Post Office building next to Union Station in Washington, D.C. Hence first is easy to access. For all those stamp collectors this is a heaven on earth where you see all the beautifully kept stamp exhibits. The atrium, in the floor level which features three suspended airmail planes, is one of five exhibit galleries that tells the story of postal history in America.
In addition to one of the world's largest collections of stamps and philatelic materials, the National Postal Museum has pre-dated stamps, vehicles used to transport the mail, mailboxes and mailbags, postal uniforms and equipment.

The Smithsonian Institution is actually a collection of museums. My favorite Smithsonian is the Air & Space Museum. They have on location hundreds of planes and spacecraft (either originals or replica) to view. You can actually go on-board some of the spacecraft replica and see just how the astronauts lived on their missions. It is extremely interesting. The museums are all free and others include National History, Indian and of course, the National Zoo.

This museum is phenomenal. There are several "sub" museums (e.g. African, Asian, etc.) and they all have such unique collections that are constantly changing. One of the neatest things about the museum is the underground corridors that connect them all. You will often see Tibetan monks wandering around in the corridors....I don't know why but they were always there when I visited. I got to go behind the scenes and see a ceramic collection once which was pretty neat. This is a place that is definitely worth seeing and the best part is it is all free!

He was our 3rd president and our nation received so much from him. Take your children with you to this monument. They have park rangers who tell his life's achievements. The children learn and enjoy the theatrics in their voice while they look at the large statue of Thomas. For us adults, we enjoyed learning of him and the memorial in full.

This is my favorite museum at the Smithsonian. It is easy to get to if you wanted to drive and park at Union Station. I found that all the exhibits about mail fraud and unique stamps were really cool. It is also in a very neat building. Save time and money by visiting the gift shop! You can buy all your unique stamps there and really cool merchandise.
