Tucked away at a corner of the city area. It wasn’t too difficult to find. It’s located in the vicinity of the central fire station (itself a heritage building and museum for the fire service of Singapore) and right beside the Free Mason building Singapore...More

Came across it by accident but loved how informative it was about stamps and the postal system. Had a lot to say about anime/ stamps which was interesting.

On our last day in SG we had a few hours to spare, and chose to pay the Philatelic Museum a visit, as it was within walking distance of our hotel. The museum is housed in a lovely little building and is easy to find....More

A excellent place to visit, not just for stamp enthusiastics or little kids, the museum has several rooms with displays that are always changing and not necessarily stramp related such as the wonderful carved egg display. There are interactive displays to keep you occupied whilst...More

An interesting place for both tourists and locals. The key themes of the exhibit do change over time, making re-visit informative fun too.

Kill your darlings, they said. Who? Quiller-Couch. Then Faulkner, Wilde, and Chekov. A weird, quaint, nice and unusual, naive, cute hodgepodge. Do not ask why there is a whole room devoted to Harry Potter or the imperial Fabergé eggs. Just enjoy the $6 whimsical ride......More
