About

National Museum of Singapore, Formerly Singapore History Museum, recently refurbished from top to bottom with a new wing added. The star of the show is the permanent Singapore History Gallery, a 2800 sq.m. multimedia extravaganza covering six centuries of island history, navigated with a super-flexible, if occasionally somewhat confusing, interactive audio guide system that lets you choose the events and items to focus on. There are also four Living Galleries focusing on food, fashion, film and photography, plus various temporary exhibitions and a few nice cafes and restaurants. 

Singapore History Gallery  : 10am to 6pm, Daily Last admission at 5.30pm 
Singapore Living Galleries : 10am to 8pm, Daily Free admission from 6pm to 8pm
