Asian Civilisations Museum

The Asian Civilisations Museum (ACM) is one of the many fascinating museums in Singapore. The Asian Civilisations Museum specialise in Asian cultures and civilisations. The museum concentrates on the history and art of China, Southeast Asia, South Asia and West Asia.

ACM fosters an understanding of the diverse heritage cultures of Singapore, their interconnections and connections with the world. The various galleries are organised thematically rather than by geographical region, with an emphasis on networks and flows rather than borders and boundaries.
