Owner description: With a history dating back to its inception in 1887, the National Museum of Singapore is the nation's oldest museum with a progressive mind. Its galleries adopt cutting-edge and multi-perspective ways of presenting history and culture to redefine conventional museum experience. A cultural and architectural landmark in Singapore, the Museum hosts innovative festivals and events all year round-the dynamic Night Festival, visually arresting art installations, as well as amazing performances and film screenings-in addition to presenting thought-provoking exhibitions involving critically important collections of artefacts. The programming is supported by a wide range of facilities and services including F&B, retail and a Resource Centre. The National Museum of Singapore re-opened in December 2006 after a three-year redevelopment, and celebrated its 125th anniversary in 2012. The Museum refreshed its permanent galleries and re-opened them on 19 September 2015 for Singapore's Golden Jubilee.

We joined one of the guided tours and found the story of the development of Singapore absolutely fascinating. We were also very impressed with the WW2 special exhibition. We had an excellent lunch at the tea shop.

There is plenty to see in this well laid out museum. The History Gallery covers 6 centuries of life in Singapore. The Rotunda houses a wonderful display History of the Forest.

Nicely laid out museum with a good history of Singapore for those who don't know much about it. Would recommend if visiting the city - was nice to hear about the key figures in history after whom a lot of streets and areas were named after and understand a lot more about the different cultures.
