The Little Prince & MORE @ SINGAPORE PHILATELIC MUSEUM

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.
