For a region rich in history and culture, museums, sadly, are not the forte for most Southeast Asian countries; often, they’re little more than dusty storage rooms. Singapore, however, is the exception, with plenty of well-thought-out spaces. Reopened in 2006 after an extensive renovation, the National Museum of Singapore deftly mixes the old with the new, down to its design, which incorporates a new glass-cloaked extension into the original colonial structure.
