The Spellman Museum of Stamps and Postal History in Weston, Mass., will hold its annual Stamp Roadshow on Sunday, April 12 from noon to 3 p.m.

For a $35 fee, stamp experts will review collections and provide information about how to potentially sell the collection, give advice about how to add to the collection, and recommend how to properly store the stamps. Evaluations will take place on a first-come first-served basis and will last up to 30 minutes.

The museum will also accept donations of collections that can qualify as a charitable tax deduction.

Individual appointments for other dates can be arranged by calling the museum at 781-768-8367. The same fee is charged.

Admission to the museum on April 12 will be free, and activities are planned for children, including stamp hunts and stamp designing. Children will also receive a free packet of stamps and a booklet about stamp collecting.

Current exhibits at the museum include presidents on stamps, celebrating Women's History Month, America in space on stamps, U.S. Love stamps, comic books and stamps, rural free delivery history, and antique children's postal games and stamp cases.

The Spellman Museum of Stamps and Postal History is located at 241 Wellesley St., Weston, MA 02493; on the campus of Regis College.
