  • It is a facility that stands in Little India. It was a new building because it looked different from the surroundings, and it was the same inside. It was a facility to introduce the history and artifacts of the India-based inhabitants that came to the Singapore, but I felt that it was different from the standard sightseeing route. It was good to consult with the schedule of stay whether to visit the India Museum in the Singapore purposely.

  • This point is collected. The general exhibition of Indians in Singapore how to take root and how to film and so on. The exhibition place is not very large. Build a small Indian can be a little other scenery, and then come here to see the exhibition and enjoy the cold.

  • This is the India History Museum where Campbell Lane and Clive Street clash. The modern and beautiful architecture showcases India ornaments and religious artifacts.

  • Nice place to see and learn Indians culture, I really like the sculpting and how their interpretation their gods. Many unique things here. Nice place, nice exhibition and nice display. I got free entry maybe because there's an event here. Worth to see.
  • 4 star because of the one hour guided tour. the museum is quite small but the stories of the volunteer tour guide would deepen the appreciation of what's inside. It's a nice showcase for the history Indians in Singapore
  • Nice effort by heritage board to combine history and culture within a tourist site. Good for locals as well to get in touch. Great distraction from the attraction.
  • Well documented. Good collections. can attract more visitors, if no entry fee.
  • A really nice little museum celebrating the indians, their history, culture and contribution in the region. Couldn't spend as much time as I would have liked to when I recently visited but would definitely recommend the place to those interested to learn about the history or just enjoy museums
