    Booking with Klook was definitely easy! Make sure to allot at least 2 hours to fully get your money’s worth and to be able to understand Singapore’s rich history! Get to listen to many of the stories of many Singaporeans and see their lives before the country’s growth! We also loved “Story of the Forest” digital exhibit!

    My daughter so happy.. she likes it.. we have a great time
  • Aimen 18 Mar 2019
    Fantastic museum with history of Singapore dating back to the 13th century. I would highly recommend the volunteer led group tours since they add a lot of color and context to the museum.
  • Hiedayyahtul Akhmar 2 Mar 2019
    This is one of the best curated museums i have been in that has a historical elememt to it. The permanent exhibits are interesting, varied and offer hands on/interactive elements as well as the standard display cases and videos. Well worth a visit!

    The amazing facade matches the content of the building. The historical exhibitions are fun and inspiring. Last but not the least, the glass rotunda exhibition was whimsical. It takes any visitor into a delightful world that warrants another visit.

    From the well-preserved artifacts, the creativity in the presentation of each art, to the awe-spiring architecture, National Museum of Singapore was a pleasure to explore. The museum gave me a glimpse of the country's culture and heritage as well as the feel of being a local. I'd like to commend the male staff who gave a free tour of on Dec 2 at approx 2-4pm. Would have loved to know his name to thank him personally for a great experience.

    Booked this ticket an hour before I went to the museum. Fast and east transaction, just show the code at the admission. Also note that there is a free guided tour at 11am and 2pm (English) so don't miss that out. I learned a lot 😊

    It was totally amazing experience...it was an immense learning experience for us...infact all the people in the world should visit singapore and visit this place...it teaches a lot about, how singapore became a first world country from a third world country. More then my kid me and my wife enjoyed beings part of that history.

    The National Museum gave us an in-depth preview of how such a small city-state became a great nation. There are various galleries featuring everything that is Singapore including their remote and recent history, culture, way of life and how they care for their environment. Definitely a must when visiting Singapore.
