Oh the joy of going to a stamp museum. They have an excellent display related to Singapore postal service and early stamps. Other rooms have displays that change every six months. Every time I go to Singapore this is a must see for me. The...More

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

The vast collection of Singapore stamps fron colonial days till the present is impressive and well presented. It is worthwhile for stamp collectors of South East Asian stamps to visit and see how a good collection is displayed.

Never really step into this small museum within walking distance from Cityhall MRT station. I am glad I did. There is a rich heritage of stamps and postal history including during the British Colonial Days. Happy to see some stamps I used during my schooling...More
