This particular one charges $15 per ticket unlike other museums in Europe which are mostly free! The inside is not so great as their history is also not that old and colourful!! End of the day not worth it .

During the heat of the day this place provides a welcome respite. I thought it was an incredibly, informative and engaging interactive journey through the history of Singapore. The standout for me was the beautiful, immersive 'story of the forest' by Team Lab. I could...More

The National Museum of Singapore is one of the finest museums I’ve visited. It’s up-to-date, comprehensively filled with exhibits that are highly informative and logically laid out. You can spend a good half-day there at least and still want to go back for more!

It depends on your interests, we were lucky to have a personal guide and spent over 2 hours. Lovely cafe and shop so I would allow for 3 hours.

the actual entry is free, but we paid about $25-30 to see a World Treasures Exhibition. Was well worth it !
