In October 2008, the National Postal Museum re-opened the Ford Education Center with new interactives and a fresh exhibition face-lift.
Each of the five (5) kiosks offer new and engaging interactives and give portal access to sections of the museum’s website including Arago, the award-winning web-site that gives digital access to the museum’s collections.
The center is designed to be a place where the museum themes of philately and postal history come together. It allows visitors to access museum content through varied media and experiences and provide a welcome environment for them to take a break! Using the Ford Education Center should also help visitors realize the value and depth of our website and onsite resources.
The Ford Education Center was made possible by a 10-year grant from the Ford Motor Company Fund. This grant established a long-term educational partnership with the National Postal Museum.
