Celebrate Women’s History Month at the National Postal Museum’s family festival. Meet a United States Postal Inspector and an Amelia Earhart impersonator as you learn about women’s roles in the Postal Service, both past and present. Make your own postcard on an original Spider Press, build a stamp collection, and enjoy a scavenger hunt throughout the museum. Leave with a special Postal Museum airplane, too. Additionally, Girl Scouts are invited to earn their Detective and Playing the Past badges.
