  • 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.

  • Absolutely awesome!! The curators know how to make every exhibit interesting, educational and entertaining for school kids and adults alike! I saw a fantastic exhibit about a shipwreck found off the Singapore coast full of plates, destined for Europe.

  • I thought the first exhibit that talked about the discovery of a merchant vessel was fantastic. The remainder of exhibits were nice but not as interesting to me.

  • 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
