It located at the junction of Coleman Street and Armenian Street. It also near to another museums and landmark buildings such as; Civil Defense Heritage Gallery, Peranakan Museum, Bible Museum, Armenian Church. It cost me S$6 to get in, I got a sticker to be stick on the clothe and a ticket with cool design.

Haii Para filateliss diluar sanaa *berasa lagi konser*, Tempat ini akan menjadi tempat favorit kalian saat berkunjung ke Singapura. Museum Filateli Singapur berlokasi didekat MRT city hall, kira-kira sekitar 10 menit jika kita berjalan kaki. Lokasinya terletak di pesimpangan Jalan Coelman dan Jalan Amrenian. Tempat juga dekat dengan beberapa museum dan bangunan ternama lain, misalnya Civil Defense Heritage Gallery, Peranakan Museum, Bible Museum, Gerjea Armenian. Dengan tiket masuk sebesar S$6, saya mendapatkan stiker yang harus ditempel di baju dan tiket dengan desain keren.



At that time, There were two exhibitions held in the museum, "The Postal Connection: Singapore & Thailand" and "Imagine Dragon". After entering the entrance gate there is a room that display "The History of Stamp", We also could know the history of Singapore's Postal service, the first motorcycle that used by postman, the first mail box, the way of stamp being printed, and the first mail + Singapore stamp.
