So we discovered that the British Museum in London was showcasing some of the oldest exhibits and artefacts from all over the world (hence, the titular name “Treasures of the World”) at the oldest museum in Singapore, the National Museum (how apt)!
The National Museum has been opened since 1849, and its current residence lay at Stamford Road, near the Singapore Management University (SMU) campus. Its magnificent Renaissance style architecture, reminiscent of many buildings erected during the British colonial era, continues to attract local and foreign visitors, keen to explore the history of Singapore. Check out our trip (together with our friend Jeanne) to the National Museum below!
The “Treasures of the World” exhibition features relics from all over the world (Africa, Asia, the Americas and Australia)! In order not to ‘spoil’ the exhibition for those who may be keen to go, we chose a few exhibits that represents the different continents and cultures featured. Obviously, no flash photography is allowed (so you will have to make do with high ISO setting)!
Finally, we introduce our newest addition to our catalogue of cameras: the Polaroid Spectra! We were impressed by its aesthetics and functionality, which was really impressive. Needless to say, we will be taking more Polaroids with the Spectra soon, and a review should be heading your way in the near future! In the meantime, check out our snapshots below:
The “Treasures of the World” exhibition will be at the National Museum until the end of May 2016. Entry to the National Museum is free for all Singaporeans and Permanent Residents, but entry to the British Museum exhibits will cost S$14 for adults (good news: free for students, including Damian :D). Check out their website for more information!
