Full description
Dating back to 1849, the National Museum of Singapore was initially located on Stamford Road before the Raffles Library and Museum and relocated to its current location in 1887. Take the chance to marvel at the amazing exhibits within Neo-Palladian and Renaissance-style architecture. 

Consisting of more than 10 permanent exhibitions, the museum is the ideal place to learn about the development of the nation. Take a journey into Singapore's past and witness first hand how people lived during the Japanese occupation and how the nation developed into the Singapore of today.

Make sure to join a guided tour at the designated time to get a complete experience while hearing the inspiring stories about the history of Singapore. Opt for the all access pass option to also enjoy the special exhibition, "An Old New World: From the East Indies to the Founding of Singapore, 1600s–1819." 

Explore the 200 years leading up to the establishment of an entrepôt in Singapore in 1819, beginning with the bustling world of trade in the East Indies that attracted the Dutch and British East India Companies from the early 17th century. The European entry into the region, for better or worse, was only part of its longer history.

This exhibition is a telling of that story, and a reflection of the broader forces at play that culminated in the events of 1819. Join the journey to An Old New World, featuring over 220 artifacts including 75 loans from institutional and private collections, among them precious personal collections and treasures from top international museums.
