Singapore Philatelic Museum

Description

Singapore Philatelic Museum is the custodian and curator of Singapore's treasure of philatelic materials. The museum collections range from stamps and archival philatelic material of Singapore from the 1830s to present day, and stamps from member countries of the Universal Postal Union.
The permanent galleries introduce the world of philately, the world's first stamp, and how stamps are a window to the world - to explore different topics such as science, technology, history and culture. Throughout the year, the museum holds special exhibitions on current topics. Educational activities are organised for schools and members of the public to discover the heritage of Singapore and other countries through philately.
At the permanent galleries, you can catch a glimpse of the world's first stamp, as well as some of the finest and most comprehensive collections of early Singapore from the 1830s to post-independence. A star piece is the only known cover in the world to bear a full set of the 1854 Indian stamps that were used in the Straits Settlements.
Standing outside the museum's historic colonial building is the only operational colonial posting box in Singapore today. The museum has a sub-post where you can buy stamps and post out your letters. You can even get your own personalized stamps made at the museum.
The experience will make you want to pick up a pen and paper and whisk off a correspondence to a loved one.
