National Museum Of Singapore, Singapore Reviews

  • The best museum I've ever been too. It is beautiful and so artistically done!! There are multiple galleries as a part of the museum, each one having a beautiful theme. One could easily spend 5 to 7 hours exploring everything the museum has to offer. Lot of voice recordings and a few video recordings are present. I personally loved the history of Singapore. Wish I could have spent more time here

  • Singapore’s oldest museum is a progressive showcase of the country’s history and culture. If you have time to visit only one place to learn about the history and culture of Singapore, this is probably it. The National Museum of Singapore tells you the intriguing story of this country in a manner that is both fun and rewarding. With its history dating back to 1887, the National Museum is the nation’s oldest, and one of the city’s architectural icons. Its permanent offerings, the Singapore History and Living Galleries, piece together the past and present in a compelling narrative.

  • Cool museum with lots of exhibitions and rooms. Multiple exhibitions are always put up here with wide range of variety. Art schools often go here if they were to conduct a field trip because it's one of the best museum in Singapore. Inside level 1 there's a small souvenir shop that sells Singapore unique knick-knacks, also some interesting "book vending machine". The staffs are also really helpful when you ask for directions(since the museum is really big and you will eventually be lost). I have been here multiple times and has never gotten bored of it.

  • The museum was very educational and presented the history of Singapore in an excellent way. There was a very good balance between visual elements, audio and interactive features which made the 2.5 hours I spent there fly by. I learned a tremendous amount and would gladly go back next time I'm in Singapore! I did not go on a tour (although I have been told by a friend that it's very worthwhile) but I did not feel like I was missing out on any part of the experience by walking around on my own. Adults $15, students and 60+ $10 admission.

  • Only saw the history parts of the museum but it was worth the time. Gives much better insight into the occupation and formation of Singapore. Was slightly disappointed that both the main and rotating exhibit only touched on the battle of Singapore but was impressed at how the main exhibit starts well before colonization up into the modern day. The museum itself has wonderful architecture and is well curated.
