Singapore National Museum

Established in 1887, the Singapore National Museum may well be the oldest museum in town, however this museum remains ahead of its time in terms of its museology. Set within a building combining glass with Neo-Palladian and Renaissance styles, you can learn about two aspects of the city: its history and the day-to-day life here. Marvel at the national treasures it houses, such as relics from the pre-colonial era, daguerreotypes and a portrait of Sir Frank Athelstane Swettenham (the premier Governor of the Straits Settlements) by John Singer Sargent. Occupying a special place in the heart of Singaporeans, the Singapore National Museum regularly hosts events and festivals including the innovative Singapore Night Festival.
