Singapore Philatelic Museum

The Manila Bulletin Online ran an interesting piece recently about the Singapore Philatelic Museum (SPM), Southeast Asia’s first and only philatelic museum.

The museum's mission is to "stimulate interest in philately, it is able to render information about the world, national history and heritage through the appealing use of philatelic materials."

"Since it opened in 1995, the SPM has been a top attraction particularly for locals, including schoolchildren who comprise 50 percent of its visitors. Walk-in tourists from various countries have also been checking it out, many drawn in by the old colonial structure that houses the museum."
