유용한 시간이었습니다. 마감 1시간 전에 도착해서 시간이 부족해서 다 보지 못해 너무 아쉬웠어요. 하나하나 다 보려면 시간이 몇 시간 걸릴 것 같아요. 조용하고 시원해요. 백과사전에는 한국 유물도 있대서 찾아보려했는데 시간 부족으로 못 봤습니다. 그래도 매우 유익했어요. more »It was a useful time. We had a great time at the end of the day. I think one will take some time to view everything. Quiet and nice. The encyclopedia was impractical, but I didn't have a shortage of time. But it was very informative.
Amazing highly detailed museum! Great displays of artifacts and exhibits with meticulous descriptions. expect to spend quiet a bit of time here. definitely worth a visit.
Nice building and a very good and extensive collection. I liked the museum very much, as from the part in Europe I live the Far Eastern and Southeastern civilizations are not very well represented. I like the Indian and the Chinese artefacts the most. A must-see museum when in Singapore
