One of the best ways to delve into Singapore’s history, culture and heritage is through its stamps. The postal service, first introduced by the British gives an interesting perspective into the development of Singapore into what it is today. I collected stamps when I was a kid, and never had I thought to look at it as a history record... More

If you weren't a stamp lover, you would emerge as one after examining the very nice stamps and first day covers. I took my Singaporean design students here, we looked at the beautiful handwriting on the letters and had a ball thinking of how these letters must have travelled for nearly a year aboard ships from Europe to Singapore, versus...

Lots of care has gone in to the quirky little museum. A few well done sections, mock ups, informational installations. Neither of us are especially fond of stamps, the museum entertained us handsomely though. I would definitely recommend.

A must visit for stamp lovers. Plenty of Singapore stamps and first day covers on sale. And special stamps from other nations on display. During my visit there was a exhibition on Elvis Presley, so there was an area with his memorabilia, dedicated to him. The museum staff are very polite and helpful. Do visit if you are in the...

This is the place where you can pop into to learn the history of Singapore stamps. It's located near Fort Canning, and you can get there with a short walk from City Hall MRT station. There are many interesting facets of stamps that you also learn here, such as the different materials that other countries use to make stamps, such... More

As a stamp collector, I found this museum fun. An Elvis Presley exhibit was featured and it is excellent for children. Items in the gift shop are high priced but this is a great stop for kids with interactive exhibits and many stamps on display.

This museum was such a pleasant surprise that far exceeded my expectations. This was my favorite museum visit in Singapore and a great value for the S$5 entrance fee. Truthfully, I went in to get out of the heat, expecting to look at a bunch of postage stamps. I was greeted by very friendly people and the museum is much... More
