The National Museum of Singapore stands as a grand statement to the relatively young history of the island nation. It takes you through an incredible journey that depicts the inspiring rise of a colonial outpost that has become an irreplaceable centre of global trade and finance. If you just have a few hours to learn the entire history of Singapore, the National Museum is the place you need to head to.

Beside housing a mix of well curated permanent exhibitions and seasonal exhibits, the building itself is an architectural beauty that infuses neo-classical design with modern elements like glass and metal. Every year, the popular Singapore Night Festival incorporates mesmerizing light projections on the building façade with cultural performances and live music to create an unforgettable experience for all visitors.
