2984 SINGAPORE - Singapore Philatelic Museum


Housed in a building designed as an additional school building to Anglo-Chinese School (Oldham Hall) in 1906, the Singapore Philatelic Museum features postage stamps and related material from Singapore and other countries from the 1830s to present day. Presented in colourful, cosy and interactive exhibitions, the miniature pieces of art offer a window into Singapore and other parts of the world - with postage stamps featuring different aspects of history, culture, science and technology. The Singapore Philatelic Museum also houses the only operational colonial posting box in Singapore.
