One of museum’s most spectacular shows is the Four Winds of Singapore, which pays tribute to the four ethnic peoples inhabiting Singapore – Chinese, Eurasian, Malay and Indian – and to their contribution to state’s prosperity and development. In addition to this, the museum offers a further tour: Trip through National Cuisine, which introduces cultural peculiarities and local dishes.

Ask for the latest promotions otherwise usual adult price is $45. Mastercard promos and some other bank promos help to save quite a bit of money.
