Singapore Philatelic Museum showcases one of the most wide-ranging collections of Singapore stamps and philatelic items.

Housed in a 19th century building that was formerly part of the Anglo-Chinese School, the Singapore Philatelic Museum is the custodian and curator of Singapore’s philatelic history.

The museum is the first of its kind in the region and showcases the country’s philatelic heritage through the display of some of the finest and most comprehensive collections of stamps from the 1830s to post-independence. The museum’s family-friendly galleries offer visitors an appreciation of stamps as windows to the significant events, history, heritage and cultures of a country.

Stamps are miniature pieces of art featuring significant events, history, and heritage of Singapore. Step inside the galleries and discover Singapore and other topics through colourful and interactive exhibitions.
