“Fun museum off the beaten path!”
Reviewed 31 December 2011

Interesting story about how the US Postal system serves this country; and how it contributed to the development of our nation. Especially moving exhibit about how the mail get to our servicemen and women during wartime. God for kids, not crowded, lot of interactive exhibits.

Good place to grab a sandwich and stroll around. I was staying at the Mariott and it was en route to the mall.

“surprisingly good”
Reviewed 28 November 2011

This museum does a great job with a limited topic. I dragged the kids there, but then couldn't get them to leave. Very interactive and fun; they even let you select some stamps to take home.

“Great View!”
Reviewed 16 November 2011

This was a neat place. There is a Ben and Jerry's inside which was what drew us there, but we ended up going up to their observatory floor (free) and the view there is almost as good as the view at the Washington Monument.
