Other than the Smithsonian, this museum has the most memorabilia in the country. The current postmaster took us on the tour, and you can tell that she has a passion for the history of the Post Office.

This museum is amazing! Great collection of all things postal, including stamps, equipment, vehicles, etc. And it's beautifully organized. The amazing thing about it is that it was all collected by one person. Truly worth a visit. You'll be amazed and delighted and educated!

I didn't think I would like it, but the collection is very large and unique, much more than I expected from a free museum tour. A must see if you are visiting Marshall Michigan.

I was dreading this tour. My husband loves to collect stamps, but that isn't that interesting to me either. We started the tour in an outside building behind the post office, and there were some vehicles in it that used to be used to deliver...More
