Guide to Singapore museum discounts

Our rating:

Everyone loves a bargain, and while many of Singapore’s world-class museums are worth the full admission fee, with a little planning you can save on regular prices or even get in for free.


The Asian Civilisations Museum (ACM if that’s too many syllables) offers a crash course in the art and cultures of the entire continent. Every Friday night from 19:00 till 21:00 tickets are halved to S$4 for adults and S$2 for children. For students with a valid ID card or if you’re over 60, admission is always S$4. Groups may save with a family ticket for S$24 (maximum five people).
