The Museum itself is located in a beautiful old building.
We were here on a Saturday, and once inside, we went to pay our admission fee, and were told it was a "free" day. Lucky for us, we saved $16s!

The Museum traces the lives of the Singaporean's from early days to now, with a wonderful collection of artifact's. There are over 11 galleries and three levels, with the story Asia told in themed Gallerie's.

The Gallery also holds temporary exhibition's, and we were very lucky a wealthy Singaporean businessman, had paid for some of China's Terracotta Warrior's to be brought out and put on display in the Museum.
We saw the Warrior's quite easily as they had us in a moving queue to enter the room, then we could walk around. It was very well set out and very interesting. I found out about this exhibition from the Tourist Information Centre.
