  • Who is interested in is right here for postage stamps. This small museum is very much about. For other people it's not worth the price of admission, unless you want to is a little squatting down and cool down. Conclusion: you can forgo a visit reassured!

  • In the commercial field, it is absolutely worth seeing that the history of Singapore has changed and progressed, and the service is very comprehensive and very different from Hong Kong.

  • I went during the time of Harry Potter exhibition. I hope they feature more special exhibitions and sell stamps related to them. A lot of good information about Singapore and their heritage.
  • I was surprised how informative the exhibits are, this is a great place for those interested in Singapore history but it is also really well set up for kids as well. The current exhibition of decorative eggs is also good and the tie in to the philately is also very clever. Give it a try it's worth a visit. 8sgd for non resident is quite reasonable.
  • Went a few months back when they had the Harry Potter exhibition. Entrance is free for Singaporeans and PRs. The museum is very small but surprisingly packed with interesting stuff. Harry Potter exhibition was in a small room. They had Shakespeare's works in another room. Then there was some musical performance. Good.
  • Very informative museums for stamp collectors. Nicely presented and you can learn so much about the history of stamps as well as the postal services.
  • Great place for stamp enthusiasts. Check out their website for special events which are usually worth a visit.

Where to stay in Singapore

For leading chain hotels, head to the area around Orchard Road, considered the tourist center of Singapore due to its varied selection of rooms, good travel links, and tourist-focused businesses. At the eastern end of the road, you'll find more luxurious and expensive options, with hotels located in impressive colonial-era architecture. North and south of this main artery, backpacker hostels and budget hotels provide affordable rooms with basic facilities.
