We called in here late one day and the help desk recommended we come back another day as it was late, we managed to arrive back again on the 132nd anniversary of the museum so everything was free. Good museum with different exhibitions on Singapore,...More

Well kept and has a great voyaging section. But as a young nation, nothing ancient or amazing to see

In about an hour I got a good overview of Singapore history in words, photos and documents. Lots more to see but did not have time.

Had a wonderful visit to the National Museum of Singapore today. Usually I struggle to spend more than 2 hours at an exhibition but today we were there for 4 1/2 hours. We really loved the “An Old New World” exhibition (there until March 2020)...More

The building is beautiful from the outside and also has an impressive atrium inside, which was bright and airy. The main exhibition is a great overview of how Singapore came to be the place it is today and is informative and interactive at times. Doesn't...More

I have to admit that the exhibitions weren’t as extensive and I assume its because Singapore isn’t an old country. But, the way the exhibitions were created made it very engaging and interactive. The architectural build of the museum itself was magnificent. Inside, the museum...More

I'll be generous and give this place three stars. Relative to most of the world, Singapore doesn't have extensive history and it shows. Much is made of Japanese occupation during the second world war. Museum layout is illogical and many exhibits lack innovation. If you're...More

It depends on your interests, we were lucky to have a personal guide and spent over 2 hours. Lovely cafe and shop so I would allow for 3 hours.

the actual entry is free, but we paid about $25-30 to see a World Treasures Exhibition. Was well worth it !
