National Museum Of Singapore, Singapore Reviews
Enjoyed this place. Had some good history right from the start of Singapore to modern day. Including wars, colonial times and the development of what Singapore has become today. Worth a visit on a warm day. Good air con (was too cold even) Very close to a food court one block down, so can leave for lunch. Entrance is 15$S for and adult, 10 for students
Words don't do justice for how brilliant this museum is. If you're in Singapore, this is a must visit just so you can realize how well the Singaporeans immortalized the history of their country, including the modern history (1920 upward), which is a rare sight to behold in most museums I have been in my life. Exploring the whole museum in detail (since they provide a description of all objects on display, a recording relevant to the era on exhibition, and the various items up for the museum-goers to interact with) would take you more than 3 hours; but it's a three hour well-spent. The museum's architecture is a beautiful mixture of modernity and history - a balance that is apparent even in Singapore's society now.
There was a guided tour of the ground floor which really brought the story to life. I'd recommend finding out what time these start and joining one. This is all about how Singapore came to be. I went while they had the stories of the rainforest display on (July 2018). This was really lovely to walk around as the seamless image was projected onto the wall all the way around the walkway which spiralled down, ending in a room with more projected images of flowers falling from the sky. The other exhibits upstairs take you through life in Singapore over the last century. It's really interesting and informative. There is a restaurant as well as an art exhibit downstairs.
Perfect for history buffs! The museum takes you through each stage of the nation's past. From early days when it was discovered and named "Singapura" to Raffles landing to make it a major trading outpost. It then goes through the Japanese occupation in WW2 and then Singapore's independence. Well worth a visit and cheap to enter.
I love the National Museum of Singapore. It’s such a good spot for photos. Old colonial building, with a contemporary interior. The staff are really helpful too. If you need help or want more information, the curators can help you out. They’ve got new installations every quarter so check it out. Free for PR and Singaporeans, if you’re looking for a family day outing. The food selection aren’t a lot, but good enough. You can visit Janice Wong, for great desserts and wine pairings. Try her chocolates, with local touches - very very special. Get yourself local souvenirs at the museum too, don’t think you can find them in malls.
