The front block of the museum building dates back to 1887. It features an elegant neo-Palladian design, a European style of architecture characterised by a highly symmetrical façade and the use of pediments above windows.
A museum café filled with stories for young and old alike, Food For Thought balances nostalgia with innovation in its restaurant design and offers signature “Museum Special” dishes inspired by stories from the galleries. By creating possibilities for conversations about where Singapore came from, where she is now and where she wants to go, Food For Thought hopes to serve up some real food for thought along with your meal.
