National Postal Museum
The Smithsonian National Postal Museum is devoted to the colorful and engaging history of the nation’s mail service and showcases the largest and most comprehensive collection of stamps and philatelic material in the world. Just steps away from bustling Union Station and in the heart of Capitol Hill, the museum is perfect for all types of events, from galas and seated dinners to cocktail receptions, lectures, and business meetings. The spectacular 90-foot high Atrium features three vintage airmail planes suspended high above guests, while the Historic Lobby offers a grand, Beaux-Arts-style space that features a rosette ceiling and elegant marble floors and columns.
