Make a trip to the Singapore Philatelic Museum

Fans of Iron Man may like this. A week ago, I visited the Singapore Philatelic Museum. Honestly speaking, I have had not much clue who Iron Man was. The wonderful thing about visiting a museum is that one gets to learn about new things. At the exhibition, Iron Man CollARTible exhibition, which is held at the Singapore Philatelic Museum from 9 Oct 2010 - 21 Nov 2010, visitors not only see unique figurines of Iron Man but also learn about Iron Man.

I learnt from this exhibition that the Jack Kirby and Stan Lee were the two people who developed the idea for Iron Man. However, it was Don Heck who did most of the finished artwork for Iron Man. I have found out that the plot and dialogue for the first appearance of Iron Man was written by Stan's brother, Larry Lieber. It seemed that a number of people worked together to co-create Iron Man.

This exhibition also traced the development of Iron Man. I suppose Iron Man fans may enjoy viewing some rare Iron Man comics on loan from collectors.

The exhibition may be comparatively small. Yet I observed that many visitors were having a pretty good time taking photos of the exhibits, and reminiscing their passion for Iron Man.

If you are a fan of Iron Man, or have an interest in Marvel Comics, make time for this exhibition before it ends on 21 Nov 2010.
