“Very complete”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

The main exhibit, with the recorded sessions, is great. Entertaining, thorough, well done. There are two tracks: history and personal to take through the museum - both fascinating.

“Singapore Museum History Gallery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

This Gallery has some very interesting displays of Singapores history. We took a free guided tour and it was well worth it. The tour guide had some interesting background information on the displays.
If you wanted to tour on your own, there was an audio tour that you could complete as fast or as slowly as you want.
It is nowhere near as big as some of the U.S. museums, but don't miss it!
The restaurants on site are VERY expensive!
