Fully constructed in 1887 and located within the Bras Basah / Bugis precinct, the National Museum is the country’s oldest museum with a progressive mind. Its galleries adopt cutting-edge and multi-perspective ways of presenting history and culture to redefine the conventional museum experience. Visitors can immerse themselves in innovative festivals, events and exhibitions that detail national history and culture. A great starting point is the Singapore History Gallery, which maps the country’s growth from 700 years ago to the modern city-state it is today.

The National Museum of Singapore is the oldest museum in Singapore. Its history dates back to 1849, when it was started as a section of a library at Singapore Institution and called the Raffles Library and Museum. After several relocations, in 1887 it moved to its permanent site at Stamford Road in the Museum Planning Area.
