Visit Museums

Don't ever think that a trip to a country becomes boring when visiting museums. Check the online page of The National Museum of Singapore to see what exhibits are in line for the rest of the year. I will not forget going to Singapore in Feb 2010 and finding out that the museum is showing relics from Egypt. I was very delighted as I have always wanted to go to Egypt and see these things.

Of Ancient Things

Fragments from known temples in different periods of ancient Egypt were on display. Pieces of jewelries, scripts, scrolls and other items from ancient past are a sight to behold. I didn't know I will be able to see these things just by coming to Singapore.

Caskets are for Real

Here, a real casket used to contain a mummified person.

Manual for the Afterlife

This is long script in a scroll well-preserved.

Sphinxes Galore

Sure they are minute compared to the Sphinx in Egypt that we usually see in Nat Geo but here they are chipped and all. It's just amazing to finally see these things up close.

Original Scripts

Fully-restored for the viewing public, these scripts are fragments of our history.

Monuments of the Past

Colorful stories surround these gods o ancient Egypt. An educational treat or everyone.
