Singapore Off The Beaten Path: 432 reviews and 573 photos

You can apply to Heritage Conservation Centre, under the management of Singapore History Museum owned by National Heritage Board, to view the Stone Age artefacts of Singapore.

Heritage Conservation Centre is, like Ban Chiang Musuem of Bangkok, not really opened to swarm of tourists but if you are an expert in Southeast Asian history, you will be delighted to view the Stone Age artefacts number:
