Directions to National Museum of Singapore
Showcasing beautiful art since 1887, the National Museum of Singapore is the nation's oldest, progressively-minded museum. It features the Singapore History Gallery, where you'll learn all about Singapore's history and traditions from the discovery of the enigmatic Singapore's Stone, to the building of the first HDBs. The museum also features four Living Galleries: Fashion Gallery, Film & Wayang Gallery (Singaporean Cinema), Photography Gallery and Food Gallery.
The Singapore History and Living Galleries have taken on a multidimensional and cutting-edge outlook to presenting history and have aided in redefining the conventional museum experience.
The iconic architecture, that you can visit for free, marries old and new in a single site reflecting the past and future. Colonel Sir H.E McCallum built the museum in 1887, and the original neo-classical flawlessly becomes part of the new modern addition. Since the addition, it has become Singapore's largest museum housing national treasures and artefacts over 18,400 square metres. The National Museum of Singapore is an architecturally iconic landmark that entertains many with year-round festivals, film screenings, events even guided tours specially designed for children.
