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.

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 :)
