Asian Civilisations Museum

Loves: The impressive Tang Shipwreck exhibit.

Our Advice: Join the free guided tours to understand more about the exhibitions. Take note that guided tours are usually not available on public holidays and from mid-December to early January (volunteer guides' annual break). After touring ACM be sure to explore the vicinity, e.g. spot the Sir Stamford Raffles statue outside Victoria Concert Hall.

If you have ever wondered why Singapore is considered the melting pot of Asia, just step into the Asian Civilisations Museum. Housed in a building that represents the very best of colonial architecture, the museum takes you on a journey through the diverse cultures and their heritages that make up modern Asia. 


With 11 thematic galleries displaying close to 1500 artefacts, the Asian Civilisations Museum (ACM) offers a complete and exhilarating experience of Asian cultures. More than a history lesson, you will find interactive spaces and activities that will keep you and your family engaged.
