I'll be honest, my son and I ducked into this museum purely for the Tintin exhibition, while the two younger kids rested before heading out to the NightZoo. We had planned to see Tintin and leave. However, this is such a great little museum, we spent just under 2 hours and covered the entire place.

I regret not bringing the 3 and 8 year old, as it is perfect for that age group too. The Imagine Dragon exhibition is perfect for the younger years, totally interactive and hands on. I did take delight in watching a father plead with his daughter that they 'really had to be going now' - thankful for once it wasn't me!

It covers a little of the history and heritage of Singapore, interesting themes in stamps and some wildly imaginative activities.

This is a highly under-rated museum in the guide books, and I am so pleased we stumbled upon it. It's well worth the visit, conveniently located and to quote my 11 year old "Who knew a stamp museum would be so fun?"

My Dad would love this place; he's a stamp collector.
