“inside the Leon Myers Stamp Center”

This gift shop houses the largest ball of stamps. All 4.6+ million of them. That was a lot of licking. The Leon Myers Stamp Center is a museum and office located in the Boys Town Visitors Center. The Stamp Center promotes stamp collecting among youth and adults, and supports Boys Town programs by selling donated stamps.

I just visited the stamps but that alone is worth the stop. They have used stamps from all over the globe for only a penny a piece.

Pretty neat place. The mural behind the ball is also made all of stamps. My 4 year old had fun looking through and picking out stamps to buy (penny a piece!) Cheapest souvenirs ever!

The World's Largest Ball of Stamps weighs in at more than 600 pounds and took over three years to construct. Be sure to check out the shop's collection of vintage and foreign stamps too!

We did not make the connection that this was in Boys Town. If you go to see the ball of stamps, take the time to tour Boys Town and go to the museum.

This was our 1st stop of a week long adventure of 22 sites. This had a great Americana feel to get us started. We're always in for the world's largest anything, a ball of stamps that size was certainly impressive and unique enough you won't ever forget it and fun to share with others.
The kids had a neat time looking through some of the other items such as a baseball card collections and tons of old stamps.
The ball of stamps is through the gift shop, but they are used to folks coming through all the time just to view it and nothing more.

It was unfortunately closed on the Sunday AM we tried to see it before heading out on the road. Be mindful of the visitor hours.

So we stopped by the gift shop and saw a few of the main attractions... this was a fine half hour stop over to stretch the legs and have bathroom breaks on a long trip. Great for our young child. They had a bowl full of cheap stamps so that she could use some of her change to buy several. Some of the stamp artwork is really cool. They also had some really old sports cards and a little history of the area. We liked it.
