Inside this beautiful old colonial building, the Asian Civilisations Museum is home to over 1,300 artifacts, presented across 11 galleries and spanning over 14,000m2 (wah – it is big so plenty to see!). The museum specializes in pan-Asian civilizations and strives to promote a better understanding of the cultures that make up Singapore’s diverse society. Excellent at providing learning opportunities for both younger and older children, the museum provides age appropriate activities, gallery-based story telling sessions and hands-on workshops, as well as a continually updated range of exhibitions. After spending a morning exploring the museum, treat yourself (oh, and the kids!) to a coffee and a cake at the on-site café.
