Owner description: The Asian Civilisations Museum is devoted to exploring the rich artistic heritage of Asia, especially the ancestral cultures of Singaporeans. Founded in 1993 and in its present building by the Singapore River since 2003, the museum traces its roots to the Raffles Museum, founded in the middle of the 19th century. ACM focuses on the many historical connections between the cultures of Asia, and between Asia and the world. Singapore’s history as a port city that brought people together from all over the world is used as a means of examining the history of Asia. Special exhibitions bring magnificent objects from around the world to our Singapore audience. Programmes like the annual River Nights encourage visitors to connect more closely with culture and the arts.

Take your time, as there is so much to see and digest. Stop seeing the marvelous sights of modern Singapore for a while and learn about the main cultural components which came together in this special place.

The museum is large, you should have at least 3 hrs to dive into the collection. Visually appealing and interactive, good for visiting with children.

I visit this museum each time I come to Singapore, there is always a different and interesting exhibition on, apart from the regular exhibits. A guided tour of the museum is helpful for first time visitors. there is just so much culture and information, it's hard to absorb it all in one visit.

Really enjoyed this museum especially it's cover of all the religions of the area, being from the west it was good to see mostly eastern history.

This is a wonderful museum. We paid $2 each for a tour at 7pm on a Friday evening when the museum was really quiet. It was half price after 7pm and half price for senior citizens. Our guide, Myram, was extremely knowledgable and enthusiastic and outlined the highlights of each exhibition room, making connections between artifacts. Well worth a visit
