Shaking It with Shakespeare
Shaking it with Shakespeare
14 May 2016 - 15 Jan 2017

Take it from the Bard himself: ‘O, had I but followed the arts!'

Not only did William Shakespeare bring us literature that questioned and exemplified what it meant to be human, but the very phrases that flowed from his texts have also shaped the very foundations of modern English itself.

As a tribute to one of the greatest writers in the English-speaking world, the Singapore Philatelic Museum celebrates the 400th death anniversary of the prolific playwright and poet with a curious, hands-on exhibition.

Families and children will gain a deeper appreciation of Shakespeare’s life and time through an exploration of over 400 stamps issued by 70 countries, century-old picture postcards, and books from the Tudor era, where the playwright grew in prominence.

Keen learners will find their place in the exhibition to read, watch and listen to recordings of Shakespearean plays, admire Romeo and Juliet costumes, and much, much more!
