Description
The largest collection of U.S. Postal memorabilia outside of Washington’s Smithsonian Institution, the Postal Service Museum houses thousands of items spanning the entire history of U.S. mail delivery.

Among the highlights are an 1890s storefront post office, the world’s first postage stamps and V-Mail from World War II. Explore the different ways carriers used to deliver mail, from a horse-drawn mail buggy to a Schwinn postal bicycle. The collection also includes a Model A mail truck that was driven in the inauguration parade of President George H.W. Bush.

The Postal Museum is open by appointment only. Call 269-420-7030 to arrange a tour; 24 hour notice is suggested.
