A very educational and enriching experience for young and old. Impressive collection of stamps and first day covers. MANY other interactive exhibits going on this time including Shakespeare and Harry Potter. FREE for locals.

The Philatelic Museum was surprisingly a very interesting visit. Other than the various unique interesting postal stamps of various countries, one would also find creative and unique style of presentation that is very attractive. You can find stamps even from India depicting dance forms and historical ones that even in India, no one would have seen. There are miniature versions... More

Lots of stamps to see here. Recommend for those who are stamp collecting enthusiasts. Best place to buy special stamps. All kinds of package available. Even you don't want to pay the enter fee for the museum, still worth a visit to the museum shop.

In the Philatelic Museum you can print out your own stamps. Just bring the picture on a USB dongle and get your Personal Stamp. They call it MyStamp. The picture on the stamp is 3,4x3 cm and you can choose between horizontal and vertical stamps. In Nov 2016 5 pieces cost 22,50S$ and one stamp is worth 1 S$ For... More

Loved this museum! Discovered this little air-conditioned gem while taking the Jubilee Walk in Singapore. The museum is interesting and a good value, but the best part was the museum's gift shop. In fact, most of the Singapore souvenirs I brought home were from the Philatelic Museum: colorful stamps, Year of the Monkey coins, small game sets, post cards, note... More

Very interesting little Museum. Well presented but feel it was more for Children with hands on activities, than serious stamp collectors. Very enjoyable none the less.

This museum was attractive and interesting. There was a special two room display featuring Shakespeare and the emphasis on how many words and phrases he gave us that are still in use today. If you were a really keen philatelist, you could immerse yourself in the enormous displays of various stamps. For people like us, who are interested in stamps,... More

Very enjoyable. Our Singaporean friends took us here. I had never been to such a museum anywhere on any of our trips. Interesting especially the 1854 stamp of all four values, issued in 1854.

Visited this museum last week. The museum looks at philately generally, philately in Singapore during the British Colonial days and then goes on to look at Singapore's philately since independence for the past 51 years. There is a charge for foreigners, but it's free for Singaporeans who would probably not attend if they had to pay. There is a general... More
