Skywatch Friday-Visit to the National Museum of Singapore (Part 1)

Today I begin my series of my visit to the National Museum of Singapore. It's been a long time since I visited this museum. There's a lot of changes to it.




The dome is still there, a familar sight.












Love the beautiful windows and the doorways and how the arches are the same.



The museum has a long history, it used to be a library on the ground floor and the small museum on the higher floor. It's history dated back to 1849. More about the museum could be found in here.



Now we have a new extension to the museum which is made of glass, will come to that in later posts. Please return to see my later posts on the museum.

For other sky watchers, please hop over to Skywatch blog.

PC, no it is not by the river, it is very near Orchard Road (besides the YMCA), the one besides the river is Asian Civilization Museum.
