Visit Canadian Stamp Collection
I have a thing for stamps. Not a collector or anything, just an appreciator. These miniature works of art elevate any piece of snail mail to something beautiful.
The Canadian Museum of History in Ottawa has a permanent exhibit of over 3000 Canadian stamps that chronicle our history as a country.
What travels the world but stays in the corner?
A stamp of course! I hope to travel very soon to Ottawa and make the time to visit the museum and all it has to offer.
The museum also makes available many exhibitions online. For example, if you are a fan of the Netflix series The Crown you may enjoy viewing Her Majesty’s Stamps. I’m working my way through A Chronology of Canadian Postal History and can’t wait to share some of my findings with you soon.
Have you been to a museum recently?
