Owner description: The Asian Civilisations Museum is devoted to exploring the rich artistic heritage of Asia, especially the ancestral cultures of Singaporeans. Founded in 1993 and in its present building by the Singapore River since 2003, the museum traces its roots to the Raffles Museum, founded in the middle of the 19th century. ACM focuses on the many historical connections between the cultures of Asia, and between Asia and the world. Singapore’s history as a port city that brought people together from all over the world is used as a means of examining the history of Asia. Special exhibitions bring magnificent objects from around the world to our Singapore audience. Programmes like the annual River Nights encourage visitors to connect more closely with culture and the arts.

Well worth the visit if you're in Singapore, this museum does a good job of placing Singapore's history and its peoples in perspective. The museum itself is well designed, with many accessible exhibits.

This is a very interesting place to visit. It's up to you whether you read everything that's there or take a listen to all the audio and video tapes. Certainly worth a look

We found this museum to be quiet interesting. However, I don't feel I could spend too long here. The exhibits where amazing and quiet interesting but there wasn't much flow and it could be quiet confusing about what related to what. The restaurant was quiet overpriced as well. But it is in a central location and was only a easy 20min walk from the singapore flyer.

Didn't spend much time there, only part of a tour group but enough time to learn about the history of Singapore
