A recent comment from Boy Scout troop 212 of Marshfield about our merit badge program:
"The scouts had an incredible adventure at the Spellman Museum. You kept the scouts and the adults thoroughly engrossed in the subject of stamps. Your knowledge, your presentation and the abundance of the stamps made this a truly unique experience for our troop. The scouts consider this one of the top scouting events."

PLEASE NOTE: PROGRAMS FOR ADULTS, SCOUTS AND SCHOOL GROUPS CAN GENERALLY BE SCHEDULED FOR ANY DAY OF THE WEEK EVEN WHEN THE MUSEUM IS CLOSED FOR GENERAL ADMISSION.
