Did you know that a village at the bottom of the Grand Canyon eats most of its mail? Or that America’s newest national park was once so secret it used an undercover address? “Trailblazing: 100 Years of Our National Parks”, a two-year temporary exhibition, chronicles these and numerous other intersections between mail and our national parks. Featuring original postage stamp art from the United States Postal Service and artifacts loaned by the National Park Service, the exhibition explores the myriad – and sometimes surprising – ways that mail moves to, through and from our national parks.

Note, this exhibit will be temporarily closed from May 22nd through May 26th, 2017.

Open every day (except December 25)
10:00 am to 5:30 pm

Admission is free!
