The Singapore Philatelic Museum (SPM) reopens in 2021 and it will be a dedicated children’s museum. A welcoming, imaginative, and nurturing space that fosters learning amongst our young, the new children’s museum will explore a wide range of themes including heritage, culture, and contemporary issues. Young ones will have the opportunity to explore and learn through artifacts, hands-on and immersive displays, personal stories, and role-playing. Its permanent galleries will introduce kids to Singapore’s history and heritage, and allow them to discover hidden treasures based on the nearby Fort Canning archaeological finds, travel in time to meet early pioneers and even run a neighborhood Post Office.
In order to create a more diverse and vibrant museum scene in Singapore, the Singapore Philatelic Museum will complement National Gallery Singapore’s Keppel Centre for Art Education, and Singapore Science Centre’s KidsSTOP, among others. It will also partner leading children’s museums overseas to exchange and benchmark best practices and pedagogy, as well as to bring meaningful children-focused exhibitions to Singapore. Visit the museum’s Facebook page for updates.
This dedicated children's museum will be a great way to introduce your kids to the museum-going experience. Plus, stamps are a great way to learn about Singapore's history and heritage as they are colorful, attractive, and tell a story.
Kids aged 12 years and below.
There will also be a special exhibition titled Happy Birthday, Singapore!, which invites kids to go behind-the-scenes to experience the planning of a National Day parade, where they will get to design parade costumes and a fireworks display.
