Hot Attraction: You’ve Got Mail

A sample of the postcards and first-day covers on view at "Philatelic Treasure from Liechtenstein."

Technology and its futuristic advancements may be all the rage, but slow down for a moment to celebrate the international mail system—and its effect on everyday life—by heading over to the Canadian Postal Museum. While you’re there, check out the exhibit “Philatelic Treasures from Liechtenstein.” Philatelists (those who study stamps and postal history) will be keen on this showcase of 27 first-day covers and postcards from the German-speaking principality. Afterwards, go ahead and write that letter to grandma. Exhibition runs until Feb. 28. Canadian Postal Museum (within the Museum of Civilization), 100 rue Laurier, Gatineau, 819-776-8200.
