National Museum of Singapore

A staggering level of detail

What we say: 4 stars

From backwater fishing village to British colony to modern metropolis, Singapore's National Museum traces the city-state's history in staggering detail.

All visitors receive a handheld electronic guide that leads you through the museum and the audio guide can be customised to your tastes — textbook-style "just-the-facts" information or a more personal storytelling approach.

In addition to the permanent history gallery, special exhibitions are hosted in the basement and the "Living Galleries" — interactive displays about Singaporean food, film, photography, and fashion — are on the second level.

The National Museum is housed in an elegant colonial building along with a gift shop and fine-dining restaurant.
