It is located underground as part of the St. Paul Ruins. A lot of the tourists seemed to not know what this place is all about and many of them did not bother to adhere to the No Picture signage. The area is quite compact and limited to few selected artefacts on display. Perhaps it would be better to have a proper tour guide who can explain things better on the historical value of the place. Otherwise you only need max 5mins if you stop by to have a look at the items - less if you just walk down and then up again passing by.

This museum is more of an exhibit. It is very small and tiny. Takes 5 minutes tops about 1.5 minute in average and 15 seconds to walk through it. Some very nice pieces nevertheless.

this is located behind the ruins of st. paul's church. not many tourists seem to be aware of this & thus, it's less crowd than the actual ruins. the crypt is located in a basement and has a quiet environment. the remains are enclosed in glass cases. it can be a little disquieting for some people.

We were viewing the photos of the Ruins Through Time from a corner of an open space at the back of the Ruins when people go downstairs in an unlikely building. There's no entrance fee and the stairs' a matter of which way to go first, the museum (right) or the crypt (left). Of course, we went the museum which is quite small. You see some oil paintings there and centuries-old figurines.

I like museum generally. This is a very small exhibit of the sacred art but I like it because the items were thoughtfully spaced out and clearly labelled. The crypt was also interesting compared to the ones I seen in Europe. It's very small but very neat.

Both the crypt and the museum are located in the underground behind the ruins. It is side by side and you would visit the crypt first followed by the museum. And yes both places are air con ;)
