Better than Smithsonian Postal Museum
2016年12月 • 独自旅游
Full disclosure: the postal system puts the bread on my table, so I have wanted to visit this place for a long time but could never match their hours with mine until this week. On entering the free museum, there was no one around but a sign said curator upstairs. The stairs had a sign that said closed to visitors, so I just went through the professional quality exhibits by myself. I have also visited the Smithsonian Postal History Museum (yes, there really is such a place, but it doesn't get the visitors the castle or the air and space museum do) and I think this place is better. They have a three wheeled vehicle used by the post office department in the 1950's , an old post office, and all kinds of other postal artifacts. As a proud member of the National Association of Letter Carriers, I would have liked to have seen more explanation of the strike and the formation of today's Postal Service. Also would have been nice have an LLV (long life vehicle) which is the primary vehicle in use today. The narrative does cover mail service in the colonies to the very first stamps to the development of RFD and parcel post to modern times, so I can't be too picky. If you are more interested in cancellations be sure to visit the museum dedicated solely to them in Bellevue, Ohio.

An absolutely fascinating trip through the history of the postal system. The curator is a personable and extremely knowledgable source of information. This is an awesome place to visit.

Fantastic Small Town Museum

I grew up in Delphos and have since moved away although my family including my dad who is now 93 still live there. I always try to find fun things to do when we go to visit him, today we went to the Postal History Museum in Delphos - this is a small museum of history of mail service , it is truly a worthwhile stop - if you are a stamp collector or just want to see how many types of stamps have been issues over the years it will not disappoint . It is free , they love to except donations so they can finish the children's area. The lady who took us around was very informed.

Thank you so much for your kind remarks about our museum. Our museum is free to the public so that we can encourage people to stop in. Glad you liked our stamp displays and I hope you also enjoyed the transportation wing with all the antique postal vehicles. Our mission is to inform people about how much of a role a mail service has had on the development of the United States from its earliest beginnings in the colonial period to our modern day US Postal Service. We hope you return often to see us and thank you for writing a review. Even though we have existed for 20 years, word of mouth is still our best advertising.
