  • I was really surprised at this Museum. It is a hidden gem in Singapore. The exhabits were absolutely great. It started slow with the reproduction post cards and children areas but the egg display was great. The miniature postal boxes were interesting. The child exhabits was even interesting. I highly recommend and only $S8.00 for an adult.
  • a good exhibition of Singapore posting system. couple with the opportunity to purchase old stamps. the museum have a stamp chop which comes at a price of sgd $0.5. the money will go towards the education funds
  • Great place to educate young ones about the history and present of stamps and postage, and heritage of Singapore.
  • Love this little hidden gem! Small museum but lots of things showcase and photo opportunities ♡ Local calls it Stamps Museum. They have interesting exhibits all the time. I was there for Harry Potter Exhibits. Definitely worth a visit.
  • Experience the magic in the philatelic museum - unassuming heritage tucked in an unfortunately-overlooked corner of our civic district! Update your children or yourselves about The Bard and other illustrious English literary geniuses and local culture (for example Peranakan) and Harry Potter, smack in the middle of town. Don't need to travel to London for Harry Potter tours! Free admission for Singaporeans and permanent residents. A must-visit, tourists and true- bred Singaporeans.
