photoblog image National Museum of Singapore

National Museum of Singapore

The National Museum of Singapore was designed by architects Henry McCallum who designed the original version and J.F. McNair who designed the scaled down version. I am told that the architecture is a mix of classicial Neo-Palladian and Renaissance; I personally do not understand much of architecture beyond Gothic and Baroque: ) 


It occupies the status of a national museum in Singapore and also the oldest. Its history dates back to 1849 when it was started as a section of a library at Singapore Institution. It soon grew large enough to be a museum in its own right. After several relocations, the Museum was moved to its present site between Penang Road and Stamford Road in 1887.

It's a fabulous wide-angle view, Ayush, on a gorgeous day. It feels very crisp and clean.
A fine building, those converging verticals really work with this angle.
great perspective!!
