Did not realize the World's Largest Ball of Stamps was located in such a place. There is certainly an important enough reason to visit Boys Town, but this was an added experience.

My friend and I were driving to Colorado and made our first pit stop to see the Ball of Stamps. We didn't realize Boys Town was more of a campus than a town and were a little off put by the people we spoke to. They were friendly, but almost overly so. The ball of stamps was cool to see... More

We went to Boy's Town to see the World's Largest Ball of Stamps as we did a family Spring Break road trip through Nebraska.

The ball is completely made of stamps. My grandfather, Arthur Mason, is the one who started it. There is even a picture of him with the exhibit. He is the one with the really big ears.

I was expecting to see exhibits about Boy's Town. What a surprise. As far as goofy road side attractions go, this is a good one; free, air-conditioned. How do we know that it is all stamps, all the way to the core?
