Singapore Philatelic Museum
Singapore Philatelic Museum is one of the island country’s most interesting museums which features stamp collections from 1830s to present day, and philatelic materials from Universal Postal Union member countries.
Presented in ways that are colorful, cosy and interactive, the stamp exhibits tell more about Singapore and other countries through stamp designs that feature different aspects of culture, science, and the arts. The museum’s permanent gallery houses the most significant items like Singapore’s first stamp and the 1834 Indian Stamps.
