Congressional Stamp Exhibit Being Held At House Office Building

Philatelic items from the personal collections of U.S. Representatives Joe Pitts, Robert Aderholt, Silvestre Reyes, Pete Sessions, Gary Ackerman and Sen. Carl Levin will be displayed at the Rayburn House Office Building (shown above) beginning next week according to a National Postal Museum (NPM) news release.

The exhibit, which is being coordinated by the NPM is designed for collectors and non-collectors alike with unique philatelic material that has never before been seen by the public.

In addition, there will be an activity station called “Stamp Collecting 101” that will introduce the hobby of philately to non-collectors. StampCamp USA will also hold a three-day workshop for youth that introduces the hobby of stamp collecting from the basics up to exhibiting, using creative 3-D and traditional formats filled with hands-on activities.

The exhibit will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. July 28 and from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. July 29-30.
