Asian Civilization Museum, Singapore Reviews
I really enjoyed this museum. They had a special exhibition on Angkor Wat and as we were going there it was good to get a taster on what it would be like. The layout was excellent and they had some great interactive activities where we could go stone rubbings and make little paper models of some of the temples and sculptures. The other exhibitions were also great. I loved the exhibition on the shipwreck found near Singapore with many of its treasures still in great condition. The display on different Asian religions was very interesting and fun to look at and the ceramics section was beautiful. You can take pictures without flash and it was decently priced. I think if you go on a Friday evening, you can get in for cheaper.
They have some interesting exhibits - especially the ground floor exhibit about an early trading ship that sunk close to Singapore - but overall it doesn’t live up to its name because it’s quite small and provides too little context. With a good guide who focuses on details, it would probably be a better experience. Excellent museum cafe though.
A tremendously interesting and beautiful collection of historical objects with thorough descriptions elaborating on their origins. I was fascinated and delighted by the craftsmanship of artists hundreds and even thousands years ago. The museum lay out and presentation is excellent.
I loved it! It was very well maintained and the docents there were actually skilled volunteers who are interested in history. I had a really enjoyable time there and i managed to learn a lot
This is very unique themed museum; able to understand history of Asian countries especially in ancient period of time. The building itself is colonial style building and you can enjoy exploring inside of this museum. Restaurant and cafe inside of this museum is very stylish and best for night chilling or weekend brunch.
