This has got to be my favourite museum out of the many museums in singapore. Not a big museum but chock full of colourful stamps and a small stamp shop selling various stamps and curios. Was there for the DC heroes exhibition and took the opportunity to look at the other exhibitions that are being held. There was a section... More

Only SGD6.00 entrance fee, the Museum offers a history of stamps, making of stamps and have an array of collections for view. Especially entranced by the QEII stamp with a bit of real diamond on it. The Museum also offers postcard mailing services with a special Philatelic stamp cancellation mark. Bought reasonably priced stamps in the shop, too. If you... More

This appears to be a small museum about stamps,but not so.go upstairs and you are told a large amount about the history of the city.every room seems to have a different subject.small rooms and well laid out.bound to appeal to kids as well as adults.far more interesting than the national museum

I went to the Singapore Philatelic Museum on 4 May 2014. It is near City Hall and Clarke Quay MRT Station, but I got loss to go to there because I walked in reverse way. I asked several Singaporeans but they did not know what and where the museum is. I went in a right way until I asked a... More

We went there with and open mind, and for $6 I think it's worth it, as it can easily take an hour to cruise round. Everyone can take something from this, even if you aren't a stamp buff. Marvel at some of the rare stamps and the history.

It's a beautiful and well organized museum. If you're interested in stamps or postal history, don't miss it.

The displays also explain in simple terms for children of modern age the use of stamps on those days of snail mail as well as how the postal system works. quite interesting place to spend time with family...

Actually I did not know that singapore has this small museum. It is good if school can arrange students to visit to arouse their interest. Nowadays I hardly met anyone who collect stamps in this era. The kids now might not know what is stamps and it's purpose. I find that this is worth a visit. It was small building... More

For the philatelist only this attraction is quite close to the Peranakan Museum so if you are already checking that out... Anyhow this museum traces the history of Singapore stamps and a number of its displays are aimed squarely at school children groups. Perhaps the most interesting aspect of the collection is its discussion of old postcards and the ones... More
