The Singapore Philatelic Museum

As you can tell from the photos I took, Singapore does have some of the most impressive examples of British colonial architecture around.  That was one reason among many why I enjoyed my trip to the tiny nation so much.  And being a fan of traditional Chinese architecture, there is no shortage of that as well.  Near the Armenian church is a small museum devoted to postage stamps.  Housed in the old Methodist Book Depository, it has examples of postage stamps from all around the world.  Here is a photo of the museum with the Masonic lodge next door.

They were having a special exhibition about comic books and stamps featuring superheroes.  Here’s a couple photos of the exhibition.
