Description

The Spellman Museum of Stamps & Postal History, located on the campus of Regis College in Weston, MA, is the oldest museum of its kind in the nation. The Spellman Museum is a center of learning for people of all ages. It preserves, enhances and expands its philatelic collections, library, and facilities and provides programs and activities as a philatelic trust for the lifelong education and inspiration of the general public. In addition, it promotes the hobby of stamp collecting, and is a resource to engage historians, the curious, and the researcher.

Stamps tell the story of the history of the Postal Service, and the story of society, cultures and identity through postage stamps. Our programs about the history of stamps and the postal system can be presented at public libraries, social clubs, senior centers, independent and assisted living facilities. And we have extraordinary exhibits and displays throughout the entire museum that illustrate our history and common connects through stamps. All children receive a free packet of stamps every visit.
