Concierge.com's insider take:
The museum's neo-Palladian facade in central Singapore sparkles since its much-needed whitewashing in 2006, but what's inside is infinitely more awe-inspiring. Singaporean architect Mok Wei Wei created 52-foot-high glass and steel gallery additions, allowing this century-old institution to mount cutting-edge exhibitions on topics somewhat unexpected for this conservative city-state. Now avant-garde photography has a place amid excellent permanent historical displays covering subjects like antique ethnic costumes. The museum also has a rotating calendar of lectures and cultural events.
Open daily 10 am to 8 pm.
