The Singapore Philatelic Museum deals with the history of Singapore's stamps. The museum, previously a part of the Anglo-Chinese School was constructed

in the year 1904. During the 1970s it served as a Methodist Book Room before being converted into a philatelic museum. Everyone will get elated after viewing the international and local exhibits. The stamps usually offer a visual narration of cultures and traditions and at the Singapore Philatelic Museum it is all the more conspicuous, the place where post-cards and stamps help us to understand the diversity and story of multi-cultural Singapore.

The museum houses both permanent and theme galleries which hosts displays and exhibitions all around the year. The theme galleries conduct temporary displays like the overseas travel exhibitions, showcasing the rare collections of world-famous philatelists and commemorating the issue of new stamps. You can learn all about the stamp-making procedures right from the design and artwork up to the completion of the product vividly exhibited through illustrated displays, games and practical activities. Visitors can arrange their tours over the phone.
The Singapore Philatelic Museum has a stamp-shop in its premises which is hugely popular with avid stamp collectors.
