WASHINGTON (WUSA) -- Take your kids to learn about stamp collecting July 24-26 at the Rayburn House Office Building in Washington, D.C.

The Smithsonian's National Post Museum, in conjunction with the American Philatelic Society, the U.S. Postal Service and Stamp Camp USA will host a special Congressional stamp exhibit for all ages and a children educational program.

During "Stamp Collecting 101" Stamp Camp USA will teach children ages 8-14 stamp-collecting basics, including the proper care of a stamp-collection and the use of cool stamp tools.

Stamps belonging to the personal collections of U.S. Senators will also be on display.

"Stamps are a great educational tool for learning about art, politics, geography, sports, history and entertainment," said Philip LoPiccolo, government relations officer for the Smithsonian. "I am delighted that so many members of Congress participate in this incredible hobby and are sharing their enthusiasm for stamp collecting."
