Women's History Month Family Day
In a fun and engaging setting, discover the various postal roles typically held by women over the last two centuries and get to know the stories of pioneers who broke the mold, such as the first female postmaster Mary Katherine Goddard. Each visitor has the opportunity to embark on a topical scavenger hunt, which entails locating relevant museum objects and exhibitions, and stopping at activity stations scattered throughout the museum. Upon successful completion, participants can take home a National Postal Museum airplane, in the spirit of trailblazing pilot Amelia Earhart. In addition, through their participation in the scavenger hunt, Girl Scouts have the opportunity to earn their “Playing the Past” and “Detective” badges.
This Women’s History Month, visit the National Postal Museum to learn all about notable women from the past through the present and reflect upon the meaningful contributions of these extraordinary individuals. Admission is free with no advance registration required. All ages are welcome.
