"Experience dynamic and diverse Asia",.Asian countries had a very diverse culture. This museum collection is full great history. There are many artifacts left that tell about how Asian civilization lived. Also, I learn we have enter a time of transition from a material civilization to a spiritual civilization. It gave us democracy and logic. well worth visiting.
One of the best museums in the region with variety of collections of cultural objects and significance of history of Asian art and culture. A must see visiting the city. Perched on the bank of Singapore river, the location is close to Raffles Place and City Hall makes it easy to walk around for tourists.
