    ...spreading its wings wide with a silver dome like a crown set upon its head. Its beautifully white architecture sparkles in the bright afternoon sun and every window, arched corridor and opening, pictures of horses and chariots engraved on the top of the building, wooden windows and carvings brings forth remembrance from my history books.

    This is the nation’s oldest museum established in 1887 when Singapore was part of the Straits Settlements, painstakingly restored for 3 years, it opened its doors in December 2006 housing national treasures, such as the mystery-shrouded Singapore Stone and 14th century gold ornaments unearthed from nearby Fort Canning Hill....

      Loved the glass walls and interior design of the National Museum.Its really a real nice place to go to especially during the weekdays when its not crowded. And enjoy a cuppa at the cafe.

      Here's a shot of one part the interior I took inside the building after i'm done with the special exhibition by Mr. Christian Lacroix, the costumier at the Exhibition Gallery 1 and The Canyon. As well as a shot of the newest art-on-site by Indonesian artist Teddy, which you will see it as soon as you step in the entrance of the museum. It will be there from May 2009 to October 2009. And the costumes collection by Mr. Christian Lacroix, will be on till 7th June 2009. Being quite a 'stranger' to fashion stuffs, I was really intrigued after the 1 hour free guided tour. The tour guide was good in describing how the costumes were for and the materials used and why they were used and so on. Its good that I actually went through the tour and understood what it is all about.

      The national museum always manage to have real interesting special exhibitions on besides the permanent ones like the 'History' gallery and the 'Living' galleries, located on the 2nd floor.

      For visitors, its a must to come to this museum, a day or half a day to walk around the exhibitions. Have fun!

        The NSM is seriously a very good place to go to with your family, and even your friends. With the place being revamped into a very modern building just at the back of Fort canning hill, it is much more a better place for your family to have an outing together.

        In the new NSM, you can explore the various histories and heritages of the races in Singapore. they even provide you with a stored hearing device to help you understand the various exhibits you are looking at. Just key in the reference number on the device and you will have the explanation of the history of the exhibit. Learning history has never been this fun and simple!

        In the NSM, there are also various rooms which specialises in the histories of various aspects of singapore, such as the history and heritage of food in singapore. you can also learn about the history of fashion in singapore in one of these rooms! Talking about the lack of culture in singapore!

        In the NSM, you can really get to know more about the history and heritage of Singapore, how our ancestors sacrificed themselves to make Singapore the country it is today! It is really an enriching experience for me. For a musuem, it is truly one you should not shun, as the musuem seriously make your social studies textbook goes 4-dimensional, making learning truly fun and interesting!

        Taking that i generally dont like musuems, i must really applaud NSM for making my experience an exceptional one.

        Rating: 4/5 (worth going to, apart from being a musuem)
