Peek into the World of the Peanuts Gang at the Singapore Philatelic Museum


There is something special about old-fashioned letters and stamps. Enveloped within a hand-written note or a letter scripted using a manual typewriter is the sense of anticipation and touch of romance layered with an air of mystery, invoked by the postage stamps of various places which one have not yet been.

The Singapore Philatelic Museum (SPM), located at a historic building near Fort Canning, pays tribute to the world of stamps and mail with archives of philatelic material. In recent years, the museum has rebooted itself by curating some of its marketing and exhibits by giving it a pop-culture slant.

One of its current exhibition is a ode to the popular syndicated comic strip "Peanuts" and its creator, Charles M. Schulz and launched in conjunction with "The Peanuts Movie" which opened at local cinemas last December. Incidentally, 2015 was also the 65th Anniversary of "Peanuts".

If you are a fan of the comic strip, you would already be aware that a whole lot of letter-writing is featured in the comic, with many of the characters interacting with family, friends and yes - even Santa - through snail mail. So, it is terrific that SPM is hosting the "With Love from Snoopy, Charlie Brown & the Peanuts Gang Exhibition", by bringing this aspect of the comic strip to life.
