William H. Gross Stamp Gallery Opens
The National Postal Museum has opened the William H. Gross Stamp Gallery, the largest stamp gallery in the world. The 12,000 square-foot gallery dramatically increased exhibition space and public access to collections. It displays rare philatelic treasures such as the 1918 “Inverted Jenny” airmail stamp, and hundreds of pullout frames, containing more than 20,000 objects that provide opportunities for visitors to view noteworthy stamps that have never been on public display.
The gallery is named for stamp collector and philanthropist William H. Gross, its primary benefactor, in recognition of his generous support.
