Co-curated with the British Museum to mark Singapore’s bicentennial anniversary, this exhibition showcases and illustrates the multi-layered perspective of Singapore’s founding father, Sir Stamford Raffles, as well as his complex legacy and journey during the days where he was stationed in South-east Asia (between 1805 to 1824).

Furthermore, aspiring historians will be intrigued as the gallery will also present the artistic and cultural heritage of the Java and the Malay world. Tickets cost $12 for Singaporeans and Permanent Residents and $20 for tourists. Visit their website for more information.
