With a rich history dating back to its inception in 1887, the National Museum of Singapore is Singapore's oldest museum. The Singapore History gallery (level 1) charts the development of Singapore through the nation’s defining moments, challenges and achievements from its earliest beginnings 700 years ago to the independent, modern city-state it is today.
The level 2 galleries features “The Goh Seng Choo” gallery which displays a selection from the “William Farquhar Collection of Drawings from 1803-1818” under the theme of “Desire and Danger”. Other galleries on level 2 explore themes close to the hearts of Singaporeans including; Modern Colony, Surviving Syonan, Growing up in Singapore and Voices of Singapore.
