The King is here

The King is here

In the form of collectibles and stamps, that is. Housed in the Singapore Philatelic Museum in commemoration of Elvis Presley’s 80th, Return to Sender highlights stamps from around the world, alongside 150 items from a local collector that include vinyl records, movie posters, magazines and books. The display room is small and cosy, which is perfect for basking in the sounds of rock ‘n’ roll, and the explanations take you from Elvis’ humble roots to the peak of his fame and the eventual deterioration of his health. Even if you’re not a fan of stamps, this is one pretty cool exhibit to check out.
