  • I was really confused by this place. There was a temporary exhibition about Singapore’s relationships with its neighbours (really interesting, well set out and nice staff on hand). And a bus tour arou...  more »
  • It is a child-friendly museum. It isn;t just a common museum because they arrange this into modern and interesting arcade. Children love to visit this museum to know about Singapore history.  more »
  • I only went to the main museum, I did not go for the bus tour, or visit the army museum. Based on that experience alone, I would say, don't bother going. Most exhibits aren't even working properly. It...  more »

  • Great experience for us, especially for the kids! The interactive facilities are especially appealing for a quiet weekend. We liked the movie theater and 3D shows. All in all, great place to go if you have spare time.
  • Love the low price of theatre movie ticket. There are also 3D glasses for 3D movies! Check out the website for show times. Love the unblocked view from the lecture- theatre-like seats! The food snacks and drinks are also at affordable price just located outside the theatre.
  • Have a chance to learn how Singapore consciously learn from the past to build a better future for the nation. The entrance is free for Singaporeans and there are also free guided tours that we can go on so that we can get access to otherwise restricted areas and explore different exhibits that they have in the area. It's pretty much a Social Studies lesson outside the classroom.
  • A little bit dated. Would be good to have a refreshed. But admittedly, it is probably meant for teens and young adults. I came with my 3 yr old and he did not even want to do the bus tour. I personally liked the place and would visit annually. They have a couple of interactive and mass multiplayer "games". More for locals than tourists.
  • Great experience to have information about Singapore history. Very modern and interesting way to tell to the visitors.
