Visit to Singapore History Museum

This is not a running related post but since i have not been running and will not run in the near future, i might blog about other stuff to keep this blog alive..... It was on the second day of 2007 that I visited the newly open Singapore History Museum in the afternoon. Saw a lambo parked outside: musuem04 The roof: musuem07 The first thing as I stepped in is the 3D drawing created by some oversea painter: musuem14 First time step in, dunnoe what to expect and dunnoe what to see, headed straight to the visitor information counter..... There are 3 exhibits ongoing: The special exhibit on Maria Theresia and 2 permanent exhibits on Singapore history and living museum. So decided just to visit all 3 since i seldom come to this type of place. Paid $15 for all. Was told to go 2nd level and explored a bit and saw this female version of merlion: musuem15 went to the back and saw some very nice lights: musuem13 decided to head down to basement for the special exhibits on Maria Theresia first...no photography allow so no photos...took an hour plus to finish browsing...very interesting stuff tired and hungry and decided to head for this small corner for viennese coffee and apple strudel: musuem09 decided to head back to second floor and go for the Singapore History Museum...very interesting way of browsing using a personal mobile device to do a audio presentation...unfortunately, due to huge amount of info and exhibits, we are unable to finish all the exhibits before closing time at 6pm...i guess next time we need to spare at least 3hrs in here to finish this part..... we back to second to see the living gallery and saw this: The renovation integrated the old museum structure with modern architecture design: musuem12 Left after visiting the living museum which consisted of fashion, food, photography and film sections. The museum is beautiful at night musuem21 musuem23 musuem22 A place worth visitng for students and those interested in Singapore history....ther are quite a number of stuff which we do not know and will never know unless we visit here....
