    Spent almost five hours in the museum because of the sheer vastness of the place. Truly enjoyed visiting all of the galleries. There is also an auditory experience program in gallery 8 and a wibd therapy session in the theatre when we visited it last week. The glass rotunda exhibit (story of the forest) is magical and cannot be missed.

    Highly recommended! I have been in Singapore 3x but it was my first time to visit museums. I suggest for first time tourists to visit this museum because it will give you a brief background of the country, its history, people and culture.
