Interesting, good explanatory captions -although only in English, they had booklets with translations. Worth a visit to get a potted summary of this interesting nation! We spent just over 2 hrs here.

Excellent museum. The history of Singapore told in an engaging and stimulating manner. Really enjoyed the divided up segments (Colonial, Japanese occupation period, etc) and gorgeous building. Worth a stop.
