An amazing private museum that is cosy and beautifully curated, I highly recommend the Intan for anyone who is interested to explore cultural and heritage spaces in Singapore.
For anyone even with a remote interest in History and learning from Museums, this attraction is well worth a couple of hours of your time.
I rank this as one of the most interesting museums in Singapore and definitely recommend it to others.

If you’re into temples, Buddhism or museums, I spent 3 hours in this temple, it’s really a spectacular and holistic evocation ambience place.
There are 5 levels and if you enjoy museums, add on another hour as 2 of the 5 levels are history and art museums.

... to new heights of grandeur, the National Museum hosts a very strong permanent display of Singapore history and temporary displays of world class exhibits through partnerships with other museums worldwide.
The modest size of the museum, relative to the British Museum and the national museums of many nations, suits the relatively short history of Singapore (Tumasik, Dan maxi).

It takes about half a day to see all three museums, so if you go early you'll be out in time for lunch in the futuristic mall that the museum is part of, and then you can still walk down to the cloud forest and fl...
Despite the price (we're used to free museums in the UK) we absolutely adored the FutureWorld permanent exhibition at the Art Science Museum.

One of the best small scale museums I have visited.
This quaint site serves as a memorial and museum in remembrance of the Malay Regiment who fought and died, many to the last man, on the same grounds/area the museum sits on.
The Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum (LKCNHM) offers you an amazing tour throughout Natural History, demonstrating how life evolved in our planet with its vast collection of artifacts and specimens.
The part that won me over was the wonderful guided tour given by Mae Chong; whose passion and knowledge really shone through that made this museum experience a unique and enriching one.

A really lovely surprise for me to learn that Singapore has an equally high quality art museum, as I normally only enjoy art museums in Amsterdam or London or New York City or Washington DC.
It's also great that the museum features art pieces from around the South East Asian region which differentiates it from other museums around the world - I like the batik pieces and the political paintings gave me...
