U.S. POST OFFICE

A transparent candy factory - two glass-walled buildings connected by a cooling tunnel - enables visitors to watch candy bars being made in an almost completely automated process. The pavilion, called "Chunky Square," also has a playground of 13 abstract sculptures that youngsters may climb on.
Highlights 
The nation's most mechanized mail service is in operation in a purely functional building put up by the Fair, and the public is invited to watch. A multitude of new sorting and handling machines enables the Post Office to deliver twice-a-day, six-day-a-week mail to all Fair exhibitors. A nine-foot high ramp leads visitors through the working area, where they may watch the machines in operation while a recorded narration explains what is going on below. A museum of colorful international mailboxes is on display outside.
* Admission: free. Open daily.
