Wow, this is the way museums should be. Interesting, informative and fun for both adults and children. The best bit was the magical Forest light show. Please please let me have this in my bedroom. It’s like living in the film Avatar. Soooo beautiful.

The exhibitions are well laid out, informative and easy to follow. Lots to see and easy to spend several hours taking it all in as it covers all of Singapore’s history. Don’t miss the story of the forest in the rotunda!

This is a small museum, easily seen in an hour or so. I learned a great deal about Singapore's past and present. The museum is well laid out, with clear explanations through written signs and some short films. There are English tours but we went...More

Good use of latest tech. Design is an attractive blend of old and new. See each rotunda. A century apart. Great social history. And for an American who knew little of Singapore’s history I learned tons.

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.
