The oldest museum in Singapore, which showcases works and exhibitions of Singapore art and culture. The building has been lovingly restored and renovated, and the exhibits are very good. The current "on off" exhibition showcases appliances and life in the 1960s through the 1980s, and brings back many childhood memories for me. It's a pleasure to see things like the typewriter and old school telephones, first generation computers, etc. There's also a huge hall that explores Singapore's history from the early days pre Stamford Raffles, to the Japanese occupation during WWII. It's definitely worth a visit or more! It's free admission to citizens. A wonderful place to go for a dose of nostalgia!
We took the opportunity to visit during public holiday. Surprisingly the crowd was not overly crowded and there are available parking lots at the museum. We came to see the “Heritage”, yet we were only shown with a train of old Malaya train. A little disappointing. The other showcasing were just as disappointing. Too much replicas and copies instead of artifacts. There are a lots better Museums in Singapore, sadly not the National Museum. Crowd: acceptable even during PH Service: top, friendly and fast Exhibition: need more contents and refresher. I think my textbooks have been information. Time needed: 1-2hours Food & Drinks: limited options (only a cafe) Admission: free for Singapore citizens Return: maybe, depending on the exhibits. The previous time before Covid I can easily spent 3-4 hours exploring. Now, lesser than 2hours I would have covered all.
