    Download the museum app. Very useful so you can snap heaps of pictures and go home and refer to the descriptions at your own time.

    Great place for hanging out. If you like arts of course. The glass stairs is pretty scary.

    A must see if you are here in Singapore. However do check online if there are any special events going on as sometimes the museum might close some of the exhibitions.

    Most of the exhibition halls are closed for renovation until Sept 2015. Nothing much to see when I went there in June 2015. However, they do have lots of activities to keep the children entertained.

  • Hong Lim P.

    700 years of Singapore is in exhibition at Basement 1. There is a lift on the far right for straight entry.

    This is a truly excellent history museum--so much so that I actually got kicked out at the end of the day when they were trying to close but I wasn't done yet! The moral of the story is to go early :)

    Look out for the little commentary boards (extra commentaries) near the benches. Good reads while u rest your feet.

    Mk Ph · September 19, 2013
  • Mk P.

    If u prefer a quiet viewing of the art, avoid the guided tour at 11 am given in loud Singlish. Beware of school excursions / tours too. Probably safer to visit in afternoon.
