The National Museum of Singapore is one of the finest museums I’ve visited. It’s up-to-date, comprehensively filled with exhibits that are highly informative and logically laid out. You can spend a good half-day there at least and still want to go back for more!

We went there on our last day and it was very nice and educational. If you have time to go there go its interesting to learn more about Singapore and the life.

Entrance was SG$15 adult. There was a restaurant inside; it looked very nice, but I didn’t get to try. Gift shop was a small kiosk. History museum was very nicely curated. About 2hours walk from pre-colonial to present. Then there were the special exhibits.

It depends on your interests, we were lucky to have a personal guide and spent over 2 hours. Lovely cafe and shop so I would allow for 3 hours.
