It was a very interesting visit. They had a special Snoopy exhibition showing lots of Snoopy comic strips and also stamp designs with Snoopy from all over the world. Their other exhibits shows the changes to Singapore's stamps and postal industry over the years since British colonization. Their museum shop also has interesting items for sale.

I highly recommend visiting this museum, even if you don't think you're interested in stamps at all. If you have a combo ticket you might as well pop in, as it's just down the road from the Peranakan Museum and not too far from the National Museum and SAM. Their temporary exhibitions are small - just one or two rooms... More

I confess; I do collect stamps, which is why I was drawn to thus museum, however I fear the majority of philatelists will be sadly disappointed. Much of this museum has been designed with children and young people in mind. It is designed to encouarge their interest in stamps and stamp collecting and as such it should appeal to this... More
