Overview
More
With a history dating back to its inception in 1887, the National Museum of Singapore is the nation's oldest museum with a progressive mind. Its galleries adopt cutting-edge and multi-perspective ways of presenting history and culture to redefine conventional museum experience. A cultural and architectural landmark in Singapore, the Museum hosts innovative festivals and events all year round-the dynamic Night Festival, visually arresting art installations, as well as amazing performances and film screenings-in addition to presenting thought-provoking exhibitions involving critically important collections of artefacts. The programming is supported by a wide range of facilities and services including F&B, retail and a Resource Centre. The National Museum of Singapore re-opened in December 2006 after a three-year redevelopment, and celebrated its 125th anniversary in 2012. The Museum refreshed its permanent galleries and re-opened them on 19 September 2015 for Singapore's Golden Jubilee.

Two floors of exhibits, some a little cluttered, printing on photos and exhibits too small, enjoyed afternoon tea and the shop had good quality souveniers

Reflects a lot of Singapore and SE Asian history and has some great artwork and cultural displays. We would suggest better signage to guide tourists , but staff were helpful.

We visited the museum as it as a 5 minute walk from the hotel. Interesting insight into the history of Singapore, the role of the British, the Japanese invasion upuntil present day Singapore. Must see to get a perspective of the history and present day.

Definitely worth a visit if you want to learn a little more about Singapore. The dome exhibit is absolutely stunning, and simply breathtaking. We spent about three and a half hours here, and it is definitely worth it. The building itself is also very beautiful,...More

It depends on your interests, we were lucky to have a personal guide and spent over 2 hours. Lovely cafe and shop so I would allow for 3 hours.
