Singapore might be best known for its food, but its cultural institutions are quickly becoming a force to be reckoned with as well. The Asian Civilisations Museum is one such heavyweight that focuses on broad and integrated perspectives of pan-Asian cultures and civilizations. The fact that the first museum dedicated to pan-Asian cultures is in Singapore is no coincidence - the city is one of the world's most ethnically diverse, whose forefathers came from every corner of Asia.
Spread over three floors and 11 galleries, the Asian Civilisations Museum is packed with multimedia and interactive components. In addition to the permanent exhibitions there is also a slew of events ranging from lecture series and talks to workshops and concerts. Click here for more details.
