The museum was so interesting, not only the exhibits of the rare and unique stamps it is also a great way to learn about the history of Singapore. The interactive displays are a great way to get children interested in stamp collecting and the history of stamps.

Located at the bottom of the Fort Canning Hill, it is conveniently accessible by bus and MRT. Using Clarke Quay Mrt Station as our starting point, we walked for about 1.5 bus stop or 600m via Hill Street before walking up Coleman Street. The building is very easily spotted with a big red postbox right in front of the building.... More

I happened to attend a Malay wedding at the Chinese Chamber of Commerce and walked across the road to Coleman Street to visit our Philatelic and further down to the National Museum. There is also the Peranakan Museum at Armenian Street and the three museums are within walking distance and can be covered within half a day. The nearest MRT... More

Visited the museum when the justice league against evil exhibition was on. So apart from stamps, there were justice league collectables and other scenes which try to capture singapore in the 1930s to 60s. The place is relatively small and can be completed in 1-2 hrs. Overall fairly interesting experience.

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.
