Stamping Around: Horses for Courses and More

Horses for Courses

The Singapore Philatelic Museum celebrates all-things equestrian in the exhibition, Horses for Courses.

Till 26 August 2014, the noble horse takes centre stage at this exhibition located at the Museum’s Lee Foundation Atrium on the ground floor.

While the event space is pretty small, its walls are lined with tons of interesting information on the history and development of horses. There is plenty of information and some interactive stations for young ones to get their heads, and hands, around.

Take a picture with a carousel horse, play a game of horseshoe, and examine a saddle and horseshoe up close. Little peek-a-boo panels invite kids to uncover nuggets of information on the history of horses, how they are cared for and their significance in different cultures.
