What an amazing building and the rich history. Opened in 1997 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

Absolutely love this museum! So much to see and read about on the various civilisations and the history. One can simply spend a day there and slowly take in the sights of the artefacts.

Raffles In Southeast Asia: Revisiting The Scholar And Statesman Friday Until Sunday 28 April 2019 Asian Civilization Museum Sir Stamford Raffles was an official with the British East India Company stationed in Southeast Asia between 1805 and 1824. He is known for establishing Singapore as a British port, as the author of The History of Java, and as a collector of natural history and cultural materials. Opinions of Raffles have changed over time. He has been viewed as a scholarly expert on the region, a progressive reformer, a committed imperialist, and even a plagiariser. In keeping with the Asian Civilisations Museum’s mission to explore encounters and connections, this exhibition presents a complex, multilayered picture of Raffles while presenting the rich artistic and cultural heritage of Java and the Malay world.
