This mini-guide will take you to Singapore's 25 most visit-worthy museums.

The museums 1. The Asian Civilisations Museum is definitely one of Singapore's top sights. As its name suggests, this fantastic museum displays the cultures of Asia's tribes and nations, with emphasis on those groups that actually built the city-state. Housed within an impressive 19th century NeoPalladian building, right next to the Singapore River, it displays thousands of rich and fascinating exhibits, including ethnic costumes, traditional jewelries, ancient books, sculptures, religious artifacts, archaeological findings and relics, and what not... From China and Southeast Asia, through the Indian subcontinent all the way to Arabia and the Middle East… The collections are truly beautiful and the museum is tastefully designed, so the visitor is not 'bombarded' with too much information… Moreover, every gallery has some interactive displays and touch screens that make the whole experience more interesting and tangible (especially for the little ones...)

2. The Arts House at the Old Parliament, right next to the Asian Civilisations Museum, occupies the beautiful Neo-Palladian building which accommodated colonial Singapore's first court house and became the seat of the Singaporean parliament in 1965, soon after the country got its independence. The historic building has been converted to an artcentre more than a decade ago, where young local artists can perform their works, and there are art exhibitions here almost all the time, including various shows and music performances (and a pretty good café too). In front of the building (facing the Old Supreme Court building) there is a bronze elephant, given as a gift from King Rama V of Siam (which is currently known as Thailand) as a token of appreciation after his visit to Singapore in 1871 Rating:   Daily, 11am – 9pm

Not far from there, around the area of Hill Street, Stamford Road and Bras Basah Road (which is known as the 'Museum Planning Area'), there is a cluster of a few very good museums that are well worth knowing about… 3. Singapore Philatelic Museum, near the corner of Hill and Coleman streets, is housed in a charmingly restored 1904 colonial building, with red tiles roof and French louvers that once accommodated the city's Anglo-Chinese School. It's obviously a must see for the stamp collectors among you, although almost everyone will find it interesting. The exhibitions are quite tastefully set and make use of interactive devices. Other than rare and precious stamps from all over the world, you will be able to learn about the history of philately in Singapore and to visit one nice exhibition that shows how a new stamp comes to the world... from the concept stage, all the way to the final product.

5. The Peranakan Museum, one of Singapore's most recommended museums, is just a couple of minutes' walk from the Philatelic Museum, on Armenian Street. Housed within a beautiful 1910 colonial building with both Neo-Classical and French-Renaissance architectural features, this unique museum is solely dedicated to the Peranakan culture that emerged circa the early 1800s, when Chinese migrants married local Malay women and adopted some local traditions, in order to assimilate into society, and became one of Southeast Asia's richest and most influential groups.

'Peranakan' is a Malay term which literally means ‘locally born' and basically describes those non-Malay who were born in the region. The best known Peranakan communities are those of the descendants of Chinese traders who migrated to Singapore, Malacca, Penang and Southeast Asia two hundred years ago, married local women and developed a distinctive culture, lifestyle and cuisine, which is like a fusion between China and Southeast Asia, but there are also non-Chinese Peranakan communities, like the Chitty Melaka (descendants of South Indian Hindu merchants and local Malay women) and the Jawi Peranakans (descendants of South Indian Muslim traders and local women). The museum's 10 galleries boast plenty of beautiful exhibits, including costumes, traditional handcrafts, replicas of Peranakan homes and so on, and although it is not a particularly large museum, it is well worth visiting, especially if ethnic cultures and traditions are your thing. Rating:  English guided tours of the museum are available at the following times: 2 pm on Mondays, 11 am and 2 pm Tuesday - Friday, and 11am, 2 and 3pm on Saturday and Sunday.
