This was an excellent learning experience. Mike's passion for his museum showed through and through. We visited three museums in the area that day and this was by far the best. I had heard about V-Mail during the time of WWII but never had the opportunity to see it until visiting the museum. Mike had so many interesting stories to tell and postal items on display. I highly recommend a visit to this interesting museum.

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.

I didn't think I would like it, but the collection is very large and unique, much more than I expected from a free museum tour. A must see if you are visiting Marshall Michigan.

This museum was created by Mike Schragg, who was the Marshall postmaster for many years.

He collected many postal service artifacts and built the museum adjacent to the Marshall post office, which is named for Schragg.

The collection is the largest of such items in the nation--next to the Smithsonian.

Contact the post office for hours. It's not always open.

We didn't know that the museum was open by appointment only but that didn't seem to be a problem at all.
The postmaster herself gave us the tour and she seemed very knowledgable.
What really surprised us was how big this museum really was. It occupies the entire basement of the post office and is packed with old artifacts, interesting machines, clothing, stamps, furniture and lots more.
I would highly recommend it to anyone who's somewhat interested in history.
Our tour took 1 hour and was very informative.
And best of all - it's free of charge. WIN

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!

This museum is amazing! Great collection of all things postal, including stamps, equipment, vehicles, etc. And it's beautifully organized. The amazing thing about it is that it was all collected by one person. Truly worth a visit. You'll be amazed and delighted and educated!

I was dreading this tour. My husband loves to collect stamps, but that isn't that interesting to me either. We started the tour in an outside building behind the post office, and there were some vehicles in it that used to be used to deliver mail and one of which Mike, the tour guide and collector of all of this stuff, rode in during a parade in D.C. The tour was supposed to take an hour, but we were there much longer, probably because it was just the two of us and we stayed interested. There are several rooms of stamps, old post boxes, photos, post office fronts, machines, postal figurines and collectables and much more. He has done an amazing job with this museum just from his passion for his profession. He used to be the post master for the area, and now his daughter is. Don't miss this tour if you are in Marshall.

My wife and I enjoyed a personalized tour by Mike Schragg's direction. Former Postmaster, he impressed us with passion for his occupation and service. Now expressed through the museum, his passion for the restoration and preservation of the artifacts and exhibits are truly noteworthy. I highly recommend this for anyones itinerary when visiting the area.

Okay, I DO history, so I'm predisposed to like this--but I really appreciate it when it's done right. The building itself, in downtown Marshall, MIchigan, a National Historic Landmark, is an architectural gem. But the museum is filled with all manner of artifacts that are very well interpreted.
