Singapore Philatelic Museum, housed in a 19th century building that was formerly part of the Anglo-Chinese School, is the custodian and curator of Singapore and world treasures of philatelic history. The museum’s 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 – affording windows into diverse areas such as science, technology, history and culture. Throughout the year, the museum holds special exhibitions on topics related to current social and cultural trends. It also organises educational activities for schools and members of the public, to promote learning and discovery through philately.
