Asian Civilization Museum, Singapore Reviews - Write a Review
A beautiful museum. Mostly full of pottery found in and around a shipwreck and some other artifacts from far between Chinese empires and the Middle East. There is another wing on religions opening in a few months. I enjoyed it, but if the aforementioned isn't your thing, this is not for you.
In my opinion it is nowhere near as good as the 5 star rating suggests. Most of the content is porcelain and earthenware, few interesting things as furniture or clothes or jewelry or weapons. The exhibitions themselves are kind of interesting but barely have a connecting theme which is trade. Some facts are repeated so if you start reading another wall of text you might get annoyed to find another three sentences that say that there was a lot of trade with China. A major annoyance is that names and descriptions of the exhibits are not placed individually in front of the exhibit but are on a separate sign (see picture). If for example you are interested in one of the twelve exhibits in a glass cube, you have to skim over all the description trying to figure out which belongs to which. This gets tiring very quickly and I didn't bother trying to understand what I was looking at after a while. The rooms themselves are nice and spacious. It's cheap so if you are close by and interested in earthenware and porcelain check it out, but I can't recommend it to anyone else.
You must visit the free daily walking tours. The first starts at 11am (1h long). Learn about the rich histories along the silk road and the maritime route.
Amazing place to discover Asian cultures and appreciate family program! Building is wonderful and very tastefully restored.
Visit on Fridays between 7 and 9. 50% discounts from usual pricing. If you can spend couple of hours here, worth a visit. Lots of learning.
