USPS Museum Delivers!
Sep 2020
Hats off to Mike for his dedication in creating this postal museum. It is a magnificient collection and Mike's enthusiasm during the tour is remarkable. We really enjoyed our time there, especially since my husband is a letter carrier. Although, I believe anyone would find this collection and the history very interesting and entertaining.

Informative, charming small museum has a lot of history
Jan 2019
We enjoyed an extensive private tour with the very chatty and informative museum director. This is a packed interior with stairs so is not suitable for small children and handicapped individuals.

Call for a visitor the museum, a friendly little town
Oct 2018
We stopped in Marshall on our way home from Grand Rapids. The people working in the post office were friendly and helpful. The museum is behind the post office in downtown Marshall. We were told it is run by a retired postmaster and is only available to visit by appointment or when they have other events like tours going on downtown. I gave this an average rating because we were only able to see the exhibits through the window. It is a small museum but it would have rated higher if we had been able to go in. We walked around town and bought donuts at the bakery. They had a number of skeletons dressed up for Halloween outside the shops on the Main Street. Ex. A Superman skeleton next to a phone booth holding Clark Kent’s clothes, a skeleton traveler with a back pack and binoculars, a ballerina skeleton, a scuba diving skeleton with skeleton fish

A fun museum
Dec 2016 • Family
Brought a 10 year old, 14 year old and 16 year old and all had a great time. We made a game of "what is your favorite stamp, craziest stamp et". Hands on activities including package sorting which somehow became a competitive sport with the teens. Easy to get in and navigate. A memorable family stop.

Unbelieveable Collection
Sep 2016 • Friends
Other than the Smithsonian, this museum has the most memorabilia in the country. The current postmaster took us on the tour, and you can tell that she has a passion for the history of the Post Office.

Fascinating Museum in Marshall MI
Aug 2016 • Couples
This is a museum in the basement of the Marshall post office. It is run by the ex-postmaster. It is very well organized and fascinating to see. It is open by appointment only, I called the day before and had an appointment for the next morning with no trouble at all. He is a real nice man and gave us a private tour. It is well worth the visit.

Awesome museum, but call for an appointment.
Aug 2016 • Family
Great family outing. The amount and variety of things is incredible! This is all a labor of love for Mike, the curator. He's an amiable former postmaster who has amassed this amazing collection over the years, and he loves to show it to people. While the museum is open during post office hours, you do need to call Mike for an appointment to show it. But no worries, as I said before, he enjoys sharing it with the public, The first room may be more interesting to adults than kids, but rest assured, there is plenty for the kids to enjoy, such as the "ISpy" exhibit, and the story of Odie the dog. And Mike's knowledge of the history of the post office is quite extensive. There is no admission cost, but please make a donation to help support the museum. It's well worth it!
