Great place to visit in the heart of Chinatown, near the food street and local markets. My kids 6 and 12 y.o. both were so interested ...they were very quite and involved. Audio guide provides detailed explanations, real life stories. Museum rooms have lots of interesting historic details. The place is full of photo zones. Very informative and authentic! highly recommended!

As a former resident in Singapore (during the 1970's), much of what is displayed here provoked many memories of conditions and practices then still in existence. So, for us, it was a trip down memory lane. However, while no longer a reflection of today, it does provide visitors, enhanced through audio-visual displays, an exceptional impression of life in Chinatown during the 20th century.

This museum not only showcases in depth life for migrants in historic Singapore, but it really highlights the life of most overseas Chinese. The migrant experience showcased is reflected all over the world and not necessarily those of the Chinese in Singapore. The curators really took time to tell the lives and stories of these people who built Singapore and there is a lot of love and pride in this museum. Love the audio/visual guide and how well thought out the whole experience was.

I loved my free egg tart afterwards too!

This was one of the highlights of our 9 days in Singapore with two of our grand daughters. They absolutely loved the 'real world displays" of how people lived in the early days of the city state's existence. The staff were very helpful and the audio/visual units available were the best we have encountered anywhere.

Visiting this museum, housed in old shop-houses in Chinatown, was fascinating but also sobering at the same time. To learn that people lived in such cramped conditions with minimal, if any, comforts, in order to make a way from themselves and their families in a new country was eye-opening.
