We were quite disappointed after seeing all the other positive reviews. Small and very artificial. Lacking in real artifacts, just mock-ups. I expected more interactive activity given other reviews. Typhoon Theater, an additional charge, was strange. The story line could be upsetting to kids -...More

Good if you really like history, but really not my thing. Some corny effects and stories here and there.

This place is newly renovated. It is different from my last visit about 4 years ago. Still, my favorite exhibit is the Typhoon Theatre. You have to pay additional fee but it is worth it.

Must try the typhoon theater, u can pre book or purchase from the entrance at $3. The whole museum will take no more than 1 hour to complete. There is a souvenir shop.

We really enjoyed this museum, which is very well laid out, with interesting exhibits, interactive sections and an immersive experience all included. It was very quiet on an otherwise crazy busy day in Sentosa. It might not be good for young children as there is...More

The boats, holograms etc were interesting but I wouldn't pay $12 (discounted as it has just been re-opened) for the few minutes it took to see the exhibits. Perhaps as a Malaysian, a fair bit is quite familiar, such as Malacca, hence, it may not...More

An interesting museum with lots to look at. Good for kids as there are things they can touch. Also the typhoon cinema was a bit of fun. Definitely worth a visit - especially if the weather is a bit rubbish.
