I enjoyed my visit here. If you like stamps you will see many different ones. They had the Harry Potter display when we were there. Fun to see so many different ones. Small shop on the main floor.

It was my second visit to the Philatelic Museum, and this time, it's for the Harry Potter exhibition. The exhibition was definitely not disappointing. The other more regular exhibits are also a must-see if you are an avid stamp collector :)

We visited to see the Harry Potter exhibition - and were not disappointed. The other sections were also fun.. Shakespeare, Singapore's History, etc. Nice central location & entry is free for locals ! The shop is stocked with lotsa stamps, first day covers & accessories !!

Given its limitation, I believe the museum is doing its best to make the place as entertaining and education as it can be. The walking space can be very cramped and when it is crowded, touring this place can... More

This is my third visit and I am lucky enough to get free admission as a Singaporean. The Harry Potter exhibition was the main attraction but everything that was displayed really amaze me! Another thing was, I did not realise there were stamps and old phone cards that can be bought at 20cents and 50cents respectively. Being able to look... More

Not because I’m a collector of stamps or anything, but because of my friend told me there’s a Harry Potter Exhibition that is currently held in the museum. Singapore Philatelic Museum is a two storey buildings with several rooms that each hosts different themes.... More

Currently there is the Harry Potter Exhibits (till 30th June 17) beside their usual history of philatelic & collection of the animal of the year (Monkey for 2016), plus other interesting collection. This museum offers many interactive displays that are child-friendly. However, do ensure that your child(ren) do not treat the place like a playground. A small shop at the... More
