National Museum of Singapore
A staggering level of detail
What we say:
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.
