We set off by taxi from Swissotel The Stamford for this museum. Sure we could have walked, but it is hot in Singapore! Unfortunately, our taxi driver had never heard of this museum and was also unable to find the entry to Empress Place - it is a one way street. He dropped us off when he felt we were somewhere near and we had to walk the rest of the way. If you find yourself in this situation you can ask to go to the Fullerton Hotel - walk through the lobby and out the other side of the hotel - the museum is just over the bridge. Do not buy drinks at the hotel.
This museum is very well presented. It is probably too much for one visit so just pick and choose the areas in which you have an interest - or come back the next day! We had a 9 year old and 11 year old with us and they found it quite interesting, especially the interactive displays. Good value for money - we got a discount when we explained the trouble we had finding the museum!
