Your Guide to Museums in Singapore

Asian Civilisation Museum
The Asian Civilisations Museum's core collections, which are based on the rich multi-ethnic heritage of Singapore and the Southeast Asian region, explore the ancestral cultures of Singaporeas.

Housed at the old Tao Nan School, the museum displays exhibits on both Peranakan and Chinese culture. Temporary exhibitions showcasing other aspects of Asia are also held regularly.

The second wing of the museum at the Empress Place Building will be completed in the second half of 2002. This will allow us to present a more comprehensive story of the cultures and civilisations that have shaped Singapore's cultural identity.

The Asian Civilisation Museum is a National Museum and an institution of the National Heritage Board.
