Singapore History Museum

The History Museum's mission is to explore and to enhance the national identity of Singapore by preserving, presenting, and interpreting the nation's history and material culture in the context of its multi-cultural origins. Exhibitions and activities are traced from a Singaporean perspective. They are mainly divided into the social, economic, constitutional history, and community history of Singapore. The Museum also works with its overseas counterparts to stage exhibitions that trace the roots of Singaporeans with their immigrant homelands. For example, the Fujian exhibition was organized jointly with the Xiamen Cultural Bureau. Visitors will also be able to stroll through an early 20th Century Peranakan house that is fully recreated with its imposing ancestral hall. On Tuesdays, and Thursdays to Sundays, the museum is opened from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. On Wednesdays, it is open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
