National Museum of Singapore

It will usually bring me fond memories whenever I walk past the National Museum of Singapore.

I remember myself joining one of the night-tours before the museum was closed for the recent renovations. The best part that I most enjoyed was to be able to climb up the stairway to the roof-top of the museum. Actually, it felt eerie to be up there, especially when the tour guide was sharing with the tour group about haunted stories that were known to the museum. Nevertheless, the climb up was the best part for it was novel. Furthermore, it would be rare for most member of the public to be up there on the roof-top.

Last weekend, I decided to take a breather from practising, and I visited the National Museum of Singapore. The visit brought back nice memories. Here are some snapshots from my visit.

This was the exhibitiion that I went for last weekend.


This familiar courtyard somehow felt new to me, because of the open-museum concept.


The wonders of glass.


Look up at the glass panels. When they were constructed to commerate the reign of Queen's Victoria (?), they were an engineering feat.


I had not enjoy walking up this flight of stairs, but a nostalgic feeling was triggered when I saw it last weekend.


I like the architecture here.
