Really good and interesting museum. It explains more about the history of Singapore but in an interactive way. All the digital experience is amazing! I loved the cinema! The building is nice and their staff is friendly. If visiting Singapore is definitely worth to visit.

We spend around 3 hours here with 2 younger children, they loved it. So interactive, even as adults we loved it. Discount given with Singapore Airlines ticket a bonus. Definitely a great morning out. The building and views are amazing.
