Singapore Philatelic Museum Tours

Singapore Philatelic Museum
The Singapore Philatelic Museum is a celebration of Singapore’s postal system and the history of stamps from around the world, from their unique designs to their significance as markers of important cultural, scientific, and technological eras throughout history.

The museum is housed in a 19th-century colonial building that was formerly part of the Anglo-Chinese School. Standing outside the building is the only colonial post box in Singapore that is still in operation today.

Inside, countless collections of colorful and interactive displays of postage stamps are on show, almost as if each were a tiny piece of art. The museum showcases not only stamps, but other related materials, from the 1830s right up to the present day. 

The exhibitions in the permanent gallery at the museum include the only full set of 1854 Indian stamps, which were used in the Straits Settlements, along with the world’s first-ever stamp.
