    Ms Tresnawati Prihadi, general manager of SPM, said: “Collecting Magic: From Stamps To Wands honours the tradition of collecting, particularly in the area of philately.

    Postage stamps, alongside community contributed collectibles, help make the Harry Potter experience more tangible and real for visitors.” 

    The best-selling Harry Potter book series, with over 450 million copies sold to date, was released from 1997 to 2007. It spawned a series of feature films, role-playing games and even theme parks.

    The opening of the play Harry Potter And The Cursed Child earlier this year in London and the impending worldwide release of the film Fantastic Beasts And Where to Find Them later this month has reignited Pottermania.

    The exhibition is free for Singaporeans and Permanent Residents while admission for foreigners is at $8 per adult and $6 per child.
