US Post Office Museum in DC

I have no excuses for not blogging since January(?), I'm just a terrible blogger. Recently I spent my spring break in D.C. Nothing went as planned, but it was still fun to do something different. I had planned on going to the Sewall-Bellmont House Museum which focuses on women's suffrage. They were doing renovations and only gave tours by appointment. That was not mentioned on the website, so if anyone is interested in going, call ahead! I look forward to going back to it sometime.

Instead I ended up going to the US Post Office Museum, mostly as a "joke" because it sounded like the most boring topic for a museum ever, so naturally I had to see what it was all about. Luckily, I could not have been more wrong! There were so many old photos, stamps, and models of cars, trains and planes. There really was a lot of vintage/retro goodness to drool over. They even had exhibits about the Titanic and the Hindenburg, which I never would have expected. They had a lot of hands on activities that would be good for kids. It really was a fun museum. Going along with the "bad blogger" theme, I did not bring a camera, so these are just a couple stolen phone pictures of a cute mail dog, and me being silly.
