The beginnings of Singapore's National Museum

The National Museum had rather humble beginnings as a small section of a library, set aside as part of a plan to revive Singapore’s cultural heritage.

After several additions and relocations, it now stands proudly in a large Neo-Palladian and Renaissance style building at the Museum Planning Area on Stamford Road. It’s located downstream from Marina Bay near Clarke Quay shopping complex.
