Asian Civilization Museum, Singapore Reviews
EMPRESS: Delicious Asian food done in an innovative way. the atmosphere is really nice with large windows looking out into the canals(Boat Quay), and lots of natural light. If you are driving, there isn't parking at the venue -- you have to park in a building nearby (eg: National Gallery)
I was surprised to find this museum organized thematically rather than by race or culture. It takes a holistic view and approach to the Asian Civilization. As a result, it avoids the ugly comparisons and competition between modern day countries where all these cultures resides today. The main themes are: Trade, Faith and Religion, Designs and Materials. The museum comprises of the old colonial building and a new modern wing. The flow between the old and new building is confusing to the first time visitor. Guided tours are available. I recommend taking advantage of these tours.
ACM is one of the most visited museum in my list. There are a lot to see in their permanent galleries. Rotated galleries tend to bring in amazing works as well. Layout are arranged nicely so you won't get lost while going from one gallery to another. Located in Boat Quay just a few minutes across Fullerton Hotel, your feet won't stop even after you stepped out of this museum.
A lovely museum. Took a free guided tour. Lovely experience. Keep an eye out for smooth coated otters when you do the river side walk.
Awesome place to learn about the rich tapestry of Asian history in Singapore. Some of the ways artifacts are displayed are truly artistic. However the highlight is the tours. Scholarly but enjoyable.
