Wandering on the streets, you can feel yourself like in India. India Cultural Center very good organized ethnographic museum. Of the elements that belong to the Indian culture and have a nice presentation with Indians settled in Singapore from time to time in the current exhibition. If there is time.

  • We were lucky and had an event with a Kathakali expert who could explain this dance form deep with a demonstration by a dancer and music group. Excellent!

  • A very good place to stop by in your Little India shopping trip. As you cool off in the comfortably air conditioned venue, examine many antique artifacts on display and a wide variety of "safe to touch" specimens and interactive exhibits too. Sometimes they have special exhibitions and performances as well.

  • Excellent architecture of the building.The history of Indian culture and contribution is presented in a attractive way with the use of technology.The person who guided us was just wonderful,I have high regards for her.The Lady is a Doctor by profession . She has given detailed information about the subject matter. Thanks to all who have been instrumental in forming the Center.
  • Small area of fun and intrigue. If only it was larger or had more content.
