I was once a Philatelist so visiting a Philatelic Museum brought me so much memories of how once upon a time i enjoyed the Hobby. The Museum is 2 floors. At the 1st level is where the Special Exhibit can be found (when we went it was about Elvis Presley), there is also the Museum Shop on the Ground Floor.... More

This time we dropped by the museum. Whilst small, it was particularly enjoyable. Stamps and memorabilia of Elvis Presley were on temporary exhibit so my wife enjoyed it too. The photo booth was great. Try the exhibits on the second floor too for glimpses of Singapore in the past.

Lot's of stamps from all over the world and an exhibition of special and rare stamps made of many different materials and with smell.... More

We visited when the super hero exhibit was on. This place is small with exhibits on 2 floors. The lady at the ticket counter was very welcoming and actually waived my son's entrance fee and gave him a special philatelic museum strap for his MRT card. The super hero exhibit was on the ground floor along side a year of... More

nice collection of stamps from all over the world, and a temporary (hopefully they'll make it permanent) exhibit of unique stamps (some w/ chocolate smell, others with different materials like gold, sand, etc). For kids, an unrelated display of singapore's culture, spices, and development.

Not a huge amount but interesting history generally of stamps but also the influence and changes during the recent history of Singapore and how some of this was reflected in the stamps. Like the letter and mail box display.

Really came here with quite low expectations, but was pleasantly surprised. There are quite a few small activities inside for young children and not related just to stamps. It was our first visit but will be tempted to return, especially since it's free for Singaporeans and PRs.

Wide diverse collection of stamps all from around the world. Interesting exhibits! Nearest carpark is beside Registry of Marriage or Peranakan Museum. Free admission for Singapore citizens & Permanent Residents only. No lift to the second floor.

Went here twice on 2011 and 2013 - both with family members who are into philately. Pretty interesting for those who are interested in philately and its history. They also have a store which sells stamps and postcards. You can send postcard from this place too.
