    Amazing and very spiritual experience. Definitely worth the time. I suggest starting the visit from the top floor where there is the terrace garden and the praying cylinder

    We started by going to the Reunion Cafe' and were inspired by the area set aside for connecting senior citizens with one another. Then we had an excellent guided tour of the history of Singapore section. Our guide really brought the history to life.

    It’s a small museum and a short tour, but packed with so much knowledge and love for all things Peranakan. The place is filled with many interesting curios, big and small. Our guide Alvin’s passion and warm hospitality made this visit a sheer joy!

    This was a nice museum that informs about the different cultures that make up Peranakan.

    My favourite display was a room filled with photos where you could learn more about them.

    In addition to the Singapore city museum, pop in to this free of charge exhibition close to China town, that explains how the city has evolved. You can easily spend an hour inside watching the miniature model of the city and learning how the city has changed and developed over time. Next to the city gallery, there is and excellent food court that is popular with locals and tourists.

    Really interesting heritage museum. Very small, quick and easy to get around but worth it to understand the heritage of Singapore.

    I had no idea that a visit to the musical box museum would lead me to witness human’s discovery of gears, materials, understanding and knowledge of music and musical instruments, culture to eventually incorporate everything into making jukebox, gramophone, LDs, CDs. My appreciation to the first owner of the museum for collecting all these treasures of the world and handing it over the current second owner of the museum who went all out to educate and share his knowledge and expertise with visitors of the museum. Thank you for answering all our inquiries with patience. Thank you for preserving the creative and delicate work of our ancestors. Yay!

    Stumbled upon this place randomly while having lunch in the area. Staff is super knowledgeable and friendly, and you learn a ton about rocks, gems, and geology. You can buy some items if you want but the guided tour is free of charge. It’s easy to tell that the people who work there are very passionate. Would recommend!

    Highly recommended
    Located in a small hill, can walk from Kent ridge park through canopy walk or from hort park.
    Lucky to join guided tour by MR Simon. He is super good and knowledgeable. He talk about this museum history and war time with clear explanation.
    Thanks a lot.

    Although one floor is closed for a new display I still found this a worthwhile stop. To see so many toys in one place is just amazing.
    A bar on the top floor is great for a cold drink.
