Singapore History Museum
Housed in the elegant National Museum building, a national monument, the Singapore History Museum explores the rich heritage of the people of Singapore, from our ethnic and cultural diversity to our struggle for nationalhood. Visitors can choose from an exciting array of exhibitions, from a recreated 20th century Peranakan house, to a tour of the 19th century paintings of Southeast Asian flora and fauna commisioned by the first Resident of Singapore Major-General William Farquhar. A major highlight is The Singapore Story: Overcoming the Odds, an exhilarating 3D show that takes us through our nation's history, from the colonial period, to present day Singapore.

The Singapore History Museum is a National Museum and an institution of the National Heritage Board.
