All of the Fort Canning area is so interesting. You can walk around the old cemetery with tombstones from old Brits--many children who died in early 1800s--anad then come into the cool air-con of the museum to learn the history.

In this artificial city where everything seems plastic, finally a place where some light is cast on the roots of the population. The story is clearly a marketed message, not very deep or critical, but one's can extract some interesting intuitions. The visit is quick,...More
