The National Museum of Singapore is definately worth a visit! When I was there they also had an exhibition from Musée D’Orsay in Paris, the name of the exhibition was “Dreams & Reality” with masterpieces of paintings, drawings and photographies from Vincent Van Gogh, Monet, Gustave Courbet and many others. One of the painting that really caught my attention was the beautiful one below. A young girl surprised in her bed by Death in the guise of a black angel.
If you want to know more about Singapore and their history there is a section of 2,800 sqm gallery with objects, art, photos etc telling about Singapore’s history. It includes the struggles the early settlers had to overcome, you will be taken through the drama of major national events as well as the personal stories of individuals. Before you enter this section you will be handed a multimedia handheld device designed to guide you through the Singapore History gallery and it’s available in English and other languages. I really liked that gallery and it gave me lots of knowledge about the country’s history and past from different perspectives.
